Drawn to Quebec: an illustrated newspaper column
1. “Just a quick note to tell Bethann [Merkle] that I really love the artwork [in the new Drawn to Quebec column]. What a wonderful idea to boost a real good article and make it excellent.” -Lise Lafond
2. “I simply wanted to say that I find Bethann Merkle’s articles on our animal kingdom most enjoyable. Her illustrations are wonderful – ducklings, birds, fish, etc. We are so lucky to have this talent here in our community.” – Isabel Sullivan Barry
3. “Thank you, Bethann Merkle, for your article “Something fishy” in the August 13, 2014, edition. We need to be reminded how fragile our oceans and the fish therein are. It is helpful to know what kind of fish to eat in order to help preserve some of the inhabitants of the sea. The estimate that in 35 years there may not be any more commercial fishing is a wakeup call.” -Mary Jean Martin”
