Bruce Barcott ‘Scarlet Maccaw’ Book Reading- Two dates!

24 Feb

Bruce Barcott, author of Scarlet Maccaw: One Woman’s Fight to Save the World’s Most Beautiful Bird, dicusses his recent work at two locations this coming week:

February 29th, 7:30pm at Elliot Bay Bookstore
-and-
March 1st, 6:30pm at Lake Forest Park’s Third Place Books

From the New York Times Book Review:

They’re out in force in Bruce Barcott’s new book, “The Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw: One Woman’s Fight to Save the World’s Most Beautiful Bird,” the story of a bitter fight against a dam in western Belize. No, it doesn’t sound thrilling (which is doubtless why the publisher kept the word “dam” out of the title), but Barcott, a contributing editor at Outside magazine and the author of “The Measure of a Mountain: Beauty and Terror on Mount Rainier,” makes it so, mashing up adventure travel, biography and nature writing in a steamy climate of corruption and intrigue.
