We wrote Roadside Geology of Georgia to help spread Earth science understanding in Georgia, and it has been a joy traveling around the state to walk and talk with those who share our interests. If your organization would like one of us to provide a program, the following information will be helpful. You can reach Dr. Witherspoon at firstname.lastname@example.org and Dr. Gore at email@example.com.
We are pleased to accept invitations for talk/walk events. We have done many of these without charging a fee. We are most likely to do this when:
á The host publicizes the event well and invites the public.
á The host does not charge the public beyond regular museum or park admission.
á There is an opportunity for book sales following the event.
á If the host has a gift shop that sells nature books, the book is available there.
á Some overnight accommodation is offered for events more than 100 miles from Decatur.
Dr. Witherspoon, who retired in September 2014 after 17 years teaching K-12 students, their students, and the public at DeKalb County SchoolsÕ Fernbank Science Center, is able to accept occasional invitations to offer workshops and school visits. Pricing, good through May 2018, is $250 per half-day or $400 per full day, plus mileage from Decatur.
