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.
