On Sunday, January 22, we’ll have a short “book read.” The discussion/social hour will begin at 4:00 pm. Then at 5:00 pm, Scott Weidensaul will join us on Zoom to talk about his enlightening book. Those who opt to attend in person will meet at the Oyster Catcher Community Center and watch the Zoom presentation together. Others can watch the Zoom at home at 5:00 pm. Register for both the in-person or the virtual event here.

The book read features Pulitzer Prize finalist Scott Weidensaul, author of “A World on the Wing.” For the book read, you can obtain a copy of “A World on the Wing” at Indigo Books, John’s Island Library, Amazon or your favorite place to obtain books (written & audio).

Here’s a summary of what we’ll learn about from Scott:

Even as scientists make astounding discoveries about the navigational and physiological feats that enable migratory birds to cross immense oceans or fly above the highest mountains, go weeks without sleep or remain in unbroken flight for months at a stretch, humans have brought many migrants to the brink. Based on his newest book “A World on the Wing,” author and researcher Scott Weidensaul takes you around the globe — with researchers in the lab probing the limits of what migrating birds can do, to the shores of the Yellow Sea in China, the remote mountains of northeastern India where tribal villages saved the greatest gathering of falcons on the planet, and the Mediterranean, where activists and police are battling bird poachers — to learn how people are fighting to understand and save the world’s great bird migrations.
