Dear Friends of the Wild Snail:
If you would like to write to me, please use the "Author Contact" form at the end of this page. Make sure you scroll below the message box and type in the hieroglyphs before sending.
I always enjoy hearing reader's reactions and it's interesting to learn where The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating has found a home. So far it has been read by a campfire at Moosehead Lake in Maine, a friend's spouse in Tennessee absconded with the family copy for a flight to California and another friend's sister was reading the book with her daughter aboard a flight to England. One friend has a copy on her nightstand and her partner keeps trying to sneak it over to his side of the bed.
The Wild Snail is gliding into medical humanities programs at medical colleges and into science, literature, and creative writing classes at the college, high school, and junior high school levels. It has found a home in programs for autistic adults and in retirement homes. Excerpts have been used in elementary schools and yoga and meditation classes.
Do you have a snail story of your own? If you've had a memorable real life encounter with a snail and would like to send a brief description of that experience, I'd enjoy hearing about it. I will post selected pieces (of up to 250 words) on my website. Please title your e-mail "Snail Story" plus a couple of words for your story title. Let me know if you want your name used or if you want to be "anonymous." Stories may be lightly edited.
It's wonderful to hear of the travels of the Wild Snail book as it glides slowly around the world.
With best wishes, Elisabeth Tova Bailey ~@~"
