Mary Alice Monroe Returns to Amelia Island - Book Launch

Mary Alice Monroe, NY Times Best Selling Author,
Returns to Amelia Island to Launch her Latest Book

Mary Alice Monroe, NY Times best-selling author, will speak at the "Butterflies Are Free" breakfast event scheduled Tuesday May 10 at St. Peter's Episcopal Church. Monroe spoke to a sold out crowd at the First Annual High Women's Weekend in May of 2011.

Monroe shared, "I fell in love with Amelia Island when I visited in October and am excited to return. I met so many wonderful people who are committed to our environment. "

The breakfast will benefit "Wild Amelia Nature Festival", May 18-20. Volunteers will coordinate with Monroe to release monarch butterflies after the breakfast event. School groups are welcome.

Wild Amelia is an exciting 3-day festival celebrating the bioregion around Amelia Island and includes nature tours, photography workshops, green business expo, the "Kid's Niche", visiting critters from the Jacksonville Zoo. Check website - for more information.

The Butterfly's Daughter, like many of Monroe's books offers insights that resonate with women and offers wonderfully, educational information about the natural world-this time the monarch butterflies. Mary Alice will discuss the powerful and inspiring parallels of self discovery with the miracle of metamorphosis and migration.

Tickets are $50 and include a signed copy of the newly released The Butterfly's Daughter and a gift of milkweed seeds for your garden. Breakfast starts at 9AM and butterfly release immediately following. Tickets can be purchased at Red Otter Outfitters, the Golf Club of Amelia after March 15 or contact Dickie Anderson at 904 556 6455. Tables can be reserved.
