Helen Macdonald | Shaler’s Fish

Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

Naturalist Helen Macdonald won the 2014 Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction for the bestselling H Is for Hawk, a “beautiful and nearly feral” (New York Times) chronicle of the devastating but transformative year she spent training a goshawk in the wake of her father’s death. Currently an affiliated research scholar at the University of Cambridge, she has written and narrated radio programs, appeared in the BBC documentary series Birds Britannia, worked as a professional falconer, sold paintings, and worked in raptor research and conservation projects across the world. In Shaler’s Fish, McDonald celebrates the natural world and its inward effects on our consciousness through a joyous book of verse. 

Please allow extra time to get to Parkway Central, due to extensive road work in the area.
