|Plant Conservation and Suspense Fiction: An Unlikely Marriage- Can fiction serve an advocacy role without being preachy? Plant species are losing habitat around the world, yet support for their protection and research is a diminishing priority. By one estimate, 12% of plant species could become extinct in the foreseeable future. In a bold new approach, Dr. Alison C. Dibble ties hard science to 9/11 suspense fiction in "A Skeptic's Luck", written under her pen name, A. D. Morel. She takes a frank look at opportunities and risks in such an endeavor, and potential for change on a regional, nationwide, and global level. Can this make a difference? Come to her illustrated talk and help decide. Books will be available for purchase.||
