A Talk with Author Jonathan Rosen

The Harvard Club, New York City | May 5, 2008

Jonathan Rosen's acclaimed new book is part memoir and part intellectual history. It describes not only his own initiation into the wonders of birding but the deep connection between the "life of the skies" and the 19th-century development of evolutionary theory in the work of Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace. "At its heart," The New York Times Book Review observed, his account is "a consideration of the relationship between spiritual yearning and evolutionary science by a birder who tries to speak highly of both."
