Dianne Odegard, public information coordinator for Austin-based Bat Conservation International, will present the October 12 Sisters in Crime: Heart of Texas program. She will debunk the myths about this “much-maligned” creature of folklore and mystery and present the truth about bats.

Bram Stoker’s fictional character Count Dracula gave bats a very “bat” name in literature. Horror films have made lots of money using bats to scare the popcorn out of moviegoers.

Feeling a little batty? Join us and discover the truth about bats at 2:00 p.m. on October 12 at Recycled Reads, 5335 Burnet Road. Just in time for  Halloween! Refreshments will be served.

Sisters in Crime Heart of Texas Chapter meets monthly on the second Sunday of the month at 2:00 p.m. at Recycled Reads Bookstore, 5335 Burnet Road. For information contact Joyce Arquette, Publicity, at (512) 266-6543.
