We had the Author Roland Smith speak at the library yesterday. Since I was supposed to be the hostess for the program I thought I should read at leas one of his books before I met him. So I went to the YA shelves and picked Jaguar. I was pleasantly suprised. It was a good read! Very action packed.
It’s about this boy whose father is a research biologist. He goes to visit his father on location in Brazil, and his trip takes a horrible turn when his dad’s boat blows up, killing his dad’s partner and friend.
The author event went very well. Roland Smith’s talk was very interesting. He talked about his writing process and the things that have inspired his books. He is also a research biologist and has been involved in many interesting projects including the reintroduciton of wolves into Yellowstone National Forest.
