Author Mary Alice Monroe Sunday March 4, 2018 2:00 PM Join us on Sunday, March 4 at 2 pm to hear NY Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe talk about her latest novel Beach House for Rent, with a special focus on how Mary Alice brings animals into her novels. The animals in her novels are usually wildlife, but in Beach House for Rent, canaries are featured. For this reason, special guest Steve Baptiste of Punta Gorda – also known as The Canary Man and is the No. 1 canary breeder in the country – will join Mary Alice to discuss this topic. Steve will even bring a group of canaries to show off their remarkable singing skills. After the talk, Mary Alice will be happy to sign copies of her books. Steve will also be available to chat about canaries.

Already a successful author, she was captivated by the beauty and fragility of her new home. Her experiences living in the midst of a habitat that was quickly changing gave her a strong and important focus for her novels. Mary Alice Monroe writes richly textured books that delve into the complexities of interpersonal relationships and the parallels between the land and life. Monroe’s novels are published worldwide. With the same heart of conservation, Monroe has written two children’s picture books as well. Monroe’s novel The Beach House will be adapted into a Hallmark Channel Hall of Fame Movie, starring three-time Golden Globe nominee Andie MacDowell and premiering exclusively on the network in 2018. Monroe lives with her family on a barrier island outside Charleston, South Carolina. She is an active conservationist and serves on the Board of the South Carolina Aquarium, The Leatherback Trust, and Charleston Literacy Volunteers. She is a frequent speaker at book festivals, conferences, and private events. Monroe is also a frequent contributor to magazines and blogs.
