Meet Jeri Magg
Jeri Magg will be in store at our Sanibel location giving a history lecture. Light refreshments will be provided.
Jeri has been freelancing for over twenty years, writing for regional and local magazines and newspapers. She and her husband Karl, moved from New York to Sanibel in 1980 with their two daughters, Carolyn and Kathy. With an avid interest in history, Jeri volunteered at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village for more than ten years and has authored numerous articles about the history of Sanibel and Captiva. Now after thirty years of listening to innumerable tales, many told by the original pioneers or their descendants, she compiled these tales, along with a site map into a book so others may enjoy learning the island's history.
Presently, while promoting her book, Jeri gives power point presentations on the island's history as well as lecturing on creative non-fiction and fiction writing along with the dos and donts of getting published.
