Cave Detectives in e-book

BULLETIN: By coincidence, this morning’s News-Leader features Matt Forir, the paleontologist in charge of researching Riverbluff Cave, which is the subject of CAVE DETECTIVES. Matt and a team of volunteers recently returned from Wyoming where they dug up the fossil remains of a large bull triceratops. The ancient creature, estimated by Matt to be about 67 million years old, will be reassembled here and mounted for display at the Natural History Museum. I worked on the board that helped create the museum and was on it while working on CAVE DETECTIVES. Way to go Matt.

Hi everyone,

I haven’t been checking on the status of CAVE DETECTIVES, UNRAVELING THE MYSTERY OF AN ICE AGE CAVE, since it went digital in February.Cave Detectives
I just did and it’s holding its own,
8th in science, 32nd in archaeology, and 34th in prehistoric. Here’s the link if you’re interested.

My thanks to Marla Wuench for inviting me to visit Truman Elementary School yesterday. I had a fine time with 150 1st and 2nd grade students. I told them I’m 200 years old. Some looked stunned but didn’t challenge it. I received a wonderful book of poems from the kids in Mrs. Darnell’s First Grade Room and an enormous poster signed by dozens of kids. My thanks to all.

Poetry workshop

Cave DetectivesANNOUNCEMENT: CAVE DETECTIVES, my nonfiction book about the ice age cave discovered in Springfield, Missouri on 9/11, has just been released as an e-book. I’m delighted to have this book available again. It became a Junior Library Guild Selection when it was released in print in 2007. The cave contains the oldest known ice age fossils discovered so far on the North American continent. I hope you’ll check it out.

Hi everyone,

I’m still away from my office but now and then I have a chance to get online for a while. I want to remind anyone who is considering my Highlights Foundation poetry workshop this fall (September 29 – October 2) to start the process of registering. Last year the event was filled by March and I hope to see that happen again for 2014.

Contact Jo Lloyd (jalloyd@highlightsfoundation.org ) for the details. Here’s the link to the workshop.http://www.highlightsfoundation.org/workshops/poetry-for-the-delight-of-it-2014/
