Deadly or Darling?
BATS AND MYSTERY
Dianne Odegard, public information coordinator for Austin-based Bat Conservation International, will present the October 12 Sisters in Crime: Heart of Texas program. She will debunk the myths about this “much-maligned” creature of folklore and mystery and present the truth about bats.
Bram Stoker’s fictional character Count Dracula gave bats a very “bat” name in literature. Horror films have made lots of money using bats to scare the popcorn out of moviegoers.
Feeling a little batty? Join us and discover the truth about bats at 2 p.m. on October 12 at Recycled Reads, 5335 Burnet Rd. Just in time for Halloween! Refreshments will be served.
Link to ten great bat films.
Mission and Vision of BCI
“The mission of Bat Conservation International is to conserve the world’s bats and their ecosystems to ensure a healthy planet.”
BCI is dedicated to the enduring protection of the world’s 1300+ species of bats and their habitats and creating a world in which bats and humans successfully coexist. In pursuit of this vision, during the next five years BCI will work worldwide at scale with local, regional, national and multinational public and private partners to respond rapidly and effectively to bat conservation crises, preventing the extinction of threatened bats and the extirpation of globally significant populations of bats.
MURDER IN THE AFTERNOON
Tuesday, October 21 at 2 pm
Sometimes you can’t wait until the evening to talk about murder. With that in mind, we invite you to join us for this afternoon book club, meeting on third Tuesday each month at 2PM on BookPeople’s third floor. Join us for coffee, tea, and discussions of some of some of our favorite books in the mystery genre. All meetings are free and open to the public!
This month, we’re discussing The Carter of ‘La Providence‘ by George Simenon.
