Anthony Martin's ”Life Traces of the Georgia Coast” at the Decatur Library
Emory environmental scientist Anthony Martin continues discussion of his new book “Life Traces of the Georgia Coast” as part of the Georgia Center for the Book series at the Decatur Library Tuesday. This talk promises to be very different from Tony’s talk at our Manuel’s meetup last month, with direct readings from his book, fewer slides and more audience participation.
