Author Visit - Sneed B. Collard III

Author Sneed B. Collard III will do an author visit at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5 at the Oshkosh Public Library. This event is part of the library's annual Bookfest.

Sneed B. Collard III is a biologist, computer scientist, and author. The son of biologists, he fell in love with the natural world at an early age, watching whales with his mother and catching snakes, turtles, and fish with his father.

In his writing, he draws from both his formal education, as well as from extensive travels to the Middle East, Asia, Australia, Central America, and other parts of the world. Author of more than 30 children’s books, Sneed seeks not only to educate, entertain, and inspire children, but also to empower them to effect positive change. In addition to writing, he is also an active speaker. He has won many speaking awards and addresses thousands of students and educators each year about writing and the environment. (source:
