Acclaimed children’s author T.A. Barron, a writer of environmentally conscious books, is scheduled to speak at the G2 Gallery in Venice at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11.

The event is co-presented by the G2 Gallery and Natural Resources Defense Council, and a $5 donation at the door will directly benefit the NRDC.

Each visitor will receive a copy of either Heartlight, The Lost Years of Merlin, or The Great Tree of Avalon, signed and personalized by the author. Additional books will be available for sale.

Barron is an author who finds inspiration in the wonders of nature and the heroic potential of every person. As part of the event, the writer will give a photo-illustrated presentation on how adults and children can find a path for living sustainably on earth with grace, humility and joy.
