WHEN BIRDS ARE NEAR with Editor and JBNHS trustee Susan Fox Rogers
Birders are writers. When I began birding ten years ago I started reading, both from the past (Alexander Wilson and Florence Merriam Bailey) and from the present (Kenn Kaufman, Pete Dunne). Because I am an editor I realized there was no contemporary literary anthology of writing about birds and birding. I set out to collect those stories, and what resulted was When Birds Are Near. This anthology includes stories from young writers like Christina Baal (who will join me on March 18) and Alison Vilag, to literary superstars like Jonathan Franzen. All offer a unique perspective on the birding experience and together create a portrait of birds and those who love them.
