New Bird Book Takes Flight at Vancouver Book Event!


Posted: October 14, 2004

Join authors Harvey Thommasen, Kevin Hutchings, Wayne Campbell and Mark Hume for a slide-show presentation and reading from their new book Birds of the Raincoast: Habits and Habitat at the Vancouver Public Library Central Branch in the Alma VanDusen and Peter Kaye rooms, 350 West Georgia Street, in Vancouver, BC on Friday, October 29, 2004 at 7:30 p.m.

Birds of the Raincoast represents the next step in West Coast bird books, a treasury of exceptional, large-format photographs with an informative text that moves beyond simple identification to probe deeper into the lives of our feathered friends. It examines birds in their environments, noting what they do, and where and when they can be found. In an engaging, familiar style enlivened by the authors’ personal experience and highlighted with intriguing facts by renowned bird biologist Wayne Campbell, Birds of the Raincoast is an indispensable tool not just for learning how to find coastal birds, but also for gaining an understanding of their natural history.

The reading is free and open to the public. For more information on the event, please call the Vancouver Public Library Events line at 604-331-3602.
