Lifelong Texan Amy Martin, aka the Moonlady, will share her deep knowledge of the moon, honed since her childhood when it gave her hope in difficult times. She has traveled across the continent just to experience its "exceptional moments in special places." And, yes, she enjoys a good howl. She promises an astronomical and anthropological, yet poetic, image-filled talk — and that you'll be a pro-level moon watcher when she's through.
A journalist and writer for over 40 years, she is the author of Wild DFW: Explore the Amazing Nature Around Dallas-Fort Worth (Timber Press, winter ’23) and Itchy Business: How to Treat the Poison Ivy and Poison Oak Rash.
