Will Russell, co-author of this outstanding book, will join them for a casual evening of birds, books, and beers. The event will begin at the store at 6:00pm, with refreshments and a few hors d’oevers, and some casual conversation. Plenty of copies of Rare Birds will be available, and Will will be happy to sign them.

At 6:30, the group will take the short walk to the tasting room of The Maine Beer Company, where Mr. Russell will offer a short talk, followed by ample time for questions between sips of the fine offers of MBC. Freeport Wild Bird Supply will have copies of Rare Birds in tow, for you to purchase and for Will to sign as well.

This is another great opportunity to learn more about this fantastic book – a must-have for all serious birders – and a chance to learn about the delectable offerings of MBC. (Non-alcoholic beverages and light snacks are also available for purchase).

Steve Palumbi, teamed up with his son and writer, Anthony Palumbi to introduce readers to The Extreme Life of the Sea - publishing date March 26,
2014. The Extreme Life of the Sea reveals the startling ways the ocean has influenced human innovation and technology— humpback-whale fins inspire fan blade shapes, ice fish lend their anti-freeze-like proteins to the ice cream industry, and the cone snail’s toxins create pain killers more potent than morphine.
Professor Palumbi has published on the genetics and evolution of sea urchins, whales, cone snails, corals, sharks, and spiders.
