We're pleased to partner with the North Cascades Audubon Society to bring Helen Macdonald to the Virtual Readings Gallery. Join us on zoom for this great event!


In Vesper Flights, Helen Macdonald gathers her best loved essays that explore the human relationship with the natural world along with new pieces in a collection both moving and frank, personal and political, meditating on notions of captivity, freedom, immigration, and flight.

"[E]xhilarating... No one describes the everyday natural world with greater power or beauty." -Slate

"Dazzling... Ms. Macdonald reminds us how marvelously unfamiliar much of the nonhuman world remains to us, even as we continue to diminish it." -Wall Street Journal
