Reads & Company, in conjunction with the Valley Forge Audubon Society, welcomes Scott Weidensaul, author of A World on the Wing: The Global Odyssey of Migratory Birds. We love World on the Wing, and the reviews have been raves across the board, with the New York Times writing, “we can only hope that birders and non-birders alike take inspiration and a call to action from A World on the Wing. This is the kind of book we’ve been waiting for.” Scott will be in conversation with Vince Smith, President of the Valley Forge Audubon Society, for what should be a great discussion!

About A World on the Wing and Scott Wiedensaul:

In the past two decades, our understanding of the navigational and physiological feats that enable birds to cross immense oceans, fly above the highest mountains, or remain in unbroken flight for months at a stretch has exploded. What we’ve learned of these key migrations–how billions of birds circumnavigate the globe, flying tens of thousands of miles between hemispheres on an annual basis–is nothing short of extraordinary.

Drawing on his own extensive fieldwork, in A World on the Wing Weidensaul unveils with dazzling prose the miracle of nature taking place over our heads.

Scott Weidensaul is the author of nearly thirty books, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist Living on the Wind. A writer and researcher specializing in birds and bird migration, he is a native of Pennsylvania now living in New Hampshire.
