After a one-week break from By The River, we’re excited to be back on the schedule Thursday with local children’s author Nina Leipold.  Nina is the author of Mermaid of Hilton Head Island, among other books she’s written for kids.  Leipold shares several interesting stories throughout her By The River interview about how she started writing.  Strangely, it began out of boredom during the evacuation for Hurricane Matthew.  Leipold has a strong passion for conservation and believes people have the best of intentions around sea creatures but simply aren’t educated on how they should and should not treat them.  It’s her hope that children will share her passion and understanding through her books and then teach their parents.  Be sure to watch By The River Thursday at 8pm on ETV- and let us know what you think!  Drop the host, Holly Jackson, a line at  We’ll see you By The River.
