About the Author

Sanibel author Charles Sobczak has been a featured lecturer with Road Scholar (formerly known as Elderhostel) for more than twenty years. He has given both lectures and power point presentations for this Boston based organization in the Everglades, Naples, Ft. Myers and Sanibel. While the earlier presentations focused on some of his literary writings, his recent presentations are based on his three non-fiction titles: Alligators, Sharks & Panthers, Living Sanibel and The Living Gulf Coast.

In addition to working with Road Scholar, Sobczak has done numerous Power Point presentations for the following organizations. This also includes several ZOOM presentations that have become increasingly popular during the Covid-19 Pandemic. To book a presentation of any of the three current lectures please contact the author directly via email at livingsanibel@gmail.com. Each presentation is approximately 40-50 minutes long and is generally followed by a Question and Answer session. Over the years Sobczak has given more than two hundred presentations on everything from publishing, writing techniques to any number of nature related topics such as invasive species, alligator and shark attacks and the best wild places and eco-destinations in Southwest Florida. Please refer to the detailed lecture descriptions located on this website for additional information about the current offerings. There is an honorarium fee and the author appreciates the ability to sell his titles after the presentation.
