In her second Florida gig for Wellesley alumnae (see Naples, Florida, mini-reunion), Melinda Ponder gave a book talk about Katharine Lee Bates: From Sea to Shining Sea to the Wellesley Club of Tampa Bay on January 27. Barbara Shepherd Poore hosted the meeting at her lovely home in Saint Petersburg. That's Barbara's garden flamingo that Melinda is holding.

While in the Tampa area, Melinda was also interviewed on the local station WFLA-TV. To see the interview, click here.
