Children's author Sneed Collard to give presentation at Douglas Library

Posted: February 16, 2012 - 1:06am

Sneed B. Collard III, the author of more than 55 children’s books about science, nature, and the environment, will be at the Douglas Library on Monday, Feb. 20 to present a program on his research and his thoughts about science and science writing. Through his books and presentations, Collard encourages young people to see science as an integrated part of their lives, not an abstract subject.

Although all three of the public libraries are closed for President’s Day, the Douglas Community Meeting Room will be open to host Collard, who is stopping in Juneau on his way to the Alaska State Library Conference in Anchorage. Friends of the Juneau Libraries are sponsoring his visit to Juneau.

The presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.

Collard’s books include both fiction and not fiction works. Titles include “Science Warriors—The Battle Against Invasive Species,” “Shep our Most Loyal Dog,” “Dog Sense,” “Wings,” and “The Prairie Builders: Reconstructing America’s Lost Grasslands.” In 2006, he was the recipient of the Washington Post Children’s Book Guild Children’s Nonfiction Writer of the Year Award for his body of work.
