Maria Daddino, author of Maria’s Duck Tales: Wildlife Stories From My Garden
Our event will culminate with a book signing and reception. Copies of Maria’s Duck Tales will be available for purchase for $14.95, cash or check only please.
Happy, sad, and at times a little whimsical, this is a collection of short stories of the sometimes complicated, sometimes heart-breaking but always enriching relationship between a woman and the wildlife who call her garden home.
Sharing her observations and interactions with the wild ducks, swans, opossums, ospreys and squirrels of Penataquit Creek, the stories are interwoven with fascinating facts about wildlife and insights into communicating with and understanding our wild friends. Maria's poignant and heartwarming memoirs, as well as the unique bond that she shares with her garden visitors, are, at times, touching, delightful, comical and heartrending.
