Give CF Calendars and 'Real James Bond' as Gifts

If you're looking for perfect gifts that support the Fyke Nature Association and the Lee Memorial Library, stop by the library and buy a 2021 Celery Farm calendar ($15 each) or a signed copy of my book, The Real James Bond ($25).

Calendar proceeds go to Fyke. Book proceeds benefit the library. (I'm on the library's board and try to promote it whenever I can.)

The Free Library of Philadelphia just posted a cool podcast about The Real James Bond, including a segment about a 16th-century cartographer/spy.

You can listen to the podcast -- which begins with a snippet from Schiffer's audiobook version narrated by Raphael Corkhill -- on Spotify here for free.

The Free Library's Joe Shemtov and Andrea Lemoins hosted the podcast. (Thanks, Joe and Andrea!)
