The Visiting Scholars program once again is able to bring Lyanda Haupt to our community. Lyandra's talk will revolve around her latest book Mozart's Starling, an exploration into the many connections of humans, animals, and music. Carmen (Lyandra's starling) and Star (Mozart's) are revealed as curriers of our connection to the nonhuman natural world and how–––by paying attention to one another–––cross species knowledge, admiration, and pleasure can make our lives richer.
Lyanda Haupt is an ecophilosopher, naturalist, and author of several books, including Crow Planet, Rare Encounters with Ordinary Birds, and Pilgrim on the Great Bird Continent for which she won the Washington State Book Award. She is an excellent speaker and returns to us as one of the first Visiting Scholars.There will be an informal reception and opportunity for book signing in the Fellowship Hall after the presentation.
