Kick off your summer with a visit to a library. On Wednesday, June 22 at 2:00 I’ll be sharing the stage at McArthur Public Library with Jim Nutting, the Amazing Bug Guy. Come see Mr. Nutting’s insects and arachnids and hear a chapter of What’s Bugging Bailey Blecker?
On Tuesday, June 28 at 3:00 I’ll be at Bridgton Public Library. (Sorry, no live bugs there.)

A good time was had by all at the launch party for “What’s Bugging Bailey Blecker?” hosted by the Portland Public Library. Kids played Bloodsucker Bingo and What Insect Is it? and entomologist extraordinaire Tony Sohns mesmerized the audience with fun facts about his live insects.
