Book signing planned for LeBuff, Anholt
Authors Charles LeBuff and Betty Anholt will participate in a book signing and meet-and-greet for their work, “Protecting Sanibel and Captiva Islands: The Conservation Story,” on March 22 from noon to 2 p.m. at Sanybel’s Finest, at 1700 Periwinkle Way, Suite 8, Sanibel. Published in 2018, the book examines the overarching impulse of residents and visitors to protect the islands.
