Word Wrangler welcomes Linda Maria Salerno to the Festival!

Linda Maria Salerno was born in Queens New York and moved at age five to Smithtown Long Island New York. Here she became an animal rights activist since fourth grade joining The American Horse Protection Association, gave up eating flesh at the age of fourteen, then worked on her art and writing. Fairness to the environment has always been a very important subject to her along with reading on the sciences and psychological aspects of how to make a better world. She did extensive travel in the states having several businesses but that was not enough for her goals in life. She needed to see the world, and the world was there just waiting for her to explore.

Linda's first book, "Where are all the Houston Toads?" is about a local endangered species. She is working on the illustrations for her second book, an autobiography in a comic book.
