Upcoming Treats!

February 7, 2011

Birders Extraordinaires! I have most thrilling news for you! There’s a new book coming out, courtesy Princeton University Press, that I’m sure will have you all salivating in no time. It’s the Crossley ID Guide to Eastern Birds! If that doesn’t mean anything to you, click on the link and check out the fabulous video with none other than the inestimable Richard Crossley himself! There’s nothing quite like his British accent. How could you not be charmed by a narrative that begins with “I started birding when I was seven years old…” It rivals the beginning of Catcher in the Rye! The sample pages from the book look quite fetching, I must say. I was also delighted to learn that Mr. Crossley now lives in Cape May, NJ with his wife and two children — to think that this world-famous birder who’s hitchhiked more than 100,000 miles around the world in search of birds is actually a family man in New Jersey, of all places! A lovely image. Come March, don’t forget to order:

It will be a thrilling read for all age groups. Speaking of thrilling read, those of you in the general Toronto area should come to a fabulous Live Bloggers reading at Draft Reading Series on Sunday, February 13, at the tasty Merchants of Green Coffee (selling free trade, shade grown, bird-friendly caffeinated awesomeness). I’ll be reading, along with illustrious bloggers Kerry Clare, Maria Meindl and Diane Kiesners.

      Just ordered the book! I saw it at a bookstore today and nearly started drooling.
