A Field Guide to Mermaids Event

City Lights Bookstore and The Jackson County Public Library are pleased to host author and artist Emily B. Martin for an event at the library on Saturday, December 3rd at 1:30 p.m.  The event will focus on Martin’s newest book, A Field Guide to Mermaids. The book is a gorgeous and vibrantly illustrated field guide cataloging various species of mermaids, based on real ecological details with a strong environmental focus. The event will also feature mermaid-themed drawing tips, crafts, and activities for all ages.  City Lights Bookstore will have books available for purchase at the library during the event. 


Emily B. Martin splits her time between working as a park ranger and an author/illustrator, resulting in her characteristic eco-fantasy adventures. An avid hiker and explorer, her experiences as a ranger help inform the characters and worlds she creates on paper. In addition to A Field Guide to Mermaids, she has written two fantasy series: Creatures of Light and Outlaw Road.
