Lister gives back with book-signing, River Day Celebration

“Part of the mystery/thriller plot of “Blood Sacrifice” involves key environmental issues facing Florida so it’s a natural fit to use sales of the book for this cause.”

Serving on the Riverkeeper board he understands the dire need for and the importance of the organization.

“With all the water wars and issues we are facing, the collapse of the bay especially, there is a real challenge here,” Lister said. “It seems like there is no reasonableness, nothing makes sense. And there are solutions. We can do so much more with less water.

“There is a great deal of concern among Riverkeeper for the bay and I am equally concerned about the rivers and the swamps. I just love this area so much and I am mindful of the issues we are facing.

“If we just rely on our elected officials, we are screwed. Alabama and Florida seem to be on the same page, but the way Georgia and the (U.S. Army) Corps have managed things, how do you get someone who has everything they want to the table.”

Lister will hold a book signing at No Name Café and the following day the River Day Celebration promises something for all ages.

Wewa Search and Rescue will offer free boat rides on the river, including sonar so passengers can get a glimpse of life below the surface.
