I Just finished The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey by Deborah Cramer. What a great read. I loved the book! Deborah Cramer does a wonderful job of taking you to some incredible places around the world to follow a little shorebird and an ancient crab. She makes you feel as if you are right along side her as she goes on the lookout for Red Knots in Patagonia or the Arctic. She also does a wonderful job of really explaining the important connection between HSC and shorebirds, especially the fragile Red Knot.
Unfortunately, I have to work this Tuesday evening, but if I could I would certainly attend the below event by New York City Audubon.
Join NYC Audubon next Tuesday, Jan. 19 for a FREE lecture with author Deborah Cramer as she discusses her new book, The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey.
The program starts at 6:30pm at our new lecture venue, the Central Park Zoo 4-D Theater (on the north side of the Arsenal building along Fifth Avenue at E. 64th Street)
