Interested in hosting an event with a Roadside Geology of Georgia author?

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 bill@georgiarocks.us and Dr. Gore at pgore@gsu.edu.

Book walks and talks

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.

Workshops, School Visits

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 2019, is $250 per half-day or $400 per full day, plus mileage from Decatur.
