Author Wendy Carbo Reads “Harry the Snakebird” at Calcasieu Parish Public Library

Louisiana children’s book author, Wendy Carbo, recently visited Calcasieu Parish Public Library to do a reading of her book, “Harry the Snakebird.” “Harry the Snakebird,” based on a true story, tells the tale of two children, Marie and Brian, who freed an Anhinga (aka a snakebird) at Capitol Lake in Baton Rouge from a littered band binding its beak, which caused it to endure starvation. The book educates young readers on the importance of protecting fish, wildlife, and their habitats from litter.


“Harry the Snakebird” is inspired by the actions of one of the founders of the Louisiana Stormwater Coalition (LSC), Marie Constantin, and Louisiana photographer, Brian J. Boudreaux.


Keep Louisiana Beautiful and the Office of the Lt. Governor of Louisiana are proud to support this book and hope it will inspire young people to be environmental stewards. The book can be purchased here.
