View PBS Video on My Writing of One Pelican at a Time

A big thank-you goes to WEDU-Tampa Bay PBS!  I appreciate having had the opportunity to be featured on this terrific station for such a worthwhile cause as GulfWatch.   Special thanks to Tara Slusher, Producer. Please take a look at the video at the bottom of this post.

PBS began the shoot on June 4 at Book Nook by the Bay, St. Petersburg, Florida, where I read and signed copies of, One Pelican at a Time.  Very early the next morning, we continued the shoot both at the beach and at our condo on Clearwater Beach, as shown below in the video.

GulfWatch is a consortium of public media companies that create broadcast and digital content for various platforms.   This one was done to engage and educate audiences about the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill and environmental issues because of it.

The public media stations include: WEDU-TV, and WUSF-TV/FM in Tampa; Louisiana Public Broadcasting; Alabama Public Television; Mississippi Public Broadcasting; WWNO-FM, New Orleans; WBHM-FM, Birmingham, AL; WSRE-TV/FM, Pensacola, Fla.; WVAS-FM, Montgomery, Ala.; and KRVS-FM in Lafayette, La. The Gulf Watch project was funded by a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).

  3. Nancy:

    How absolutely wonderful! You and the crew did a terrific job! Don't be surprised if you find me at your door one morning to enjoy your beautiful view and your delightful company!

    Warm regards,

  4. Nancy, I'm proud to know you, even though it's only through the internet.

  5. Many thanks to you all for such supportive comments! Perhaps the nicest thing about this profession is the colleagues one has the pleasure to work with and get to know. So appreciated

  6. Nancy,
    Your video is beautifully put together. The kids were really intrested. I like what you said about inspiration. Writers just have to keep our antenna up all the time so inspiration can strike.

  7. This is wonderful. I'm so thrilled for you, Nancy. You've written a great book. Can't wait to see the next one.
