Anders and Beverly Gyllenhaal

Join veteran journalists Anders and Beverly Gyllenhaal to hear highlights from their book "A Wing and a Prayer: The Race to Save Our Vanishing Birds." This is the story of scientists, birders, hunters and ranchers working to save birds, set against the loss of a third of North America's bird populations in the past 50 years. The Gyllenhaals traveled 25,000 miles chronicling experiments, politics and new technologies to save birds from extinction. They found inspiring and encouraging rescue missions all across the hemisphere, but they also discovered how much more can and must be done to the halt these dramatic declines, and that any one of us can get involved. Books will be available for sale.
This talk will be inside the Doris Duke Center. Admission is free, and no registration is required. Parking for this event will also be free.
Presented in collaboration with Durham County Library and the Durham Library Foundation.
