Award-winning Artist and Naturalist Jim Arnosky
Reveals the Secret World of America’s Birds of Prey in
Thunder Birds: Nature’s Flying Predators

WHEN: Friday, April 8 at 3:00 pm

WHO: Award-winning artist and naturalist Jim Arnosky is a self-taught artist who has learned how to create stunning illustrations of all kinds of animals by venturing into the remote wilderness to observe animals in their natural habitat. He won numerous awards for his books, including Wild Tracks!: A Guide to Nature’s Footprints and Slither and Crawl: Eye to Eye with Reptiles.

In addition, he had the rare opportunity to work with one of America’s most influential singer/songwriters, Bob Dylan. Jim Arnosky has long admired Bob Dylan’s work for its integrity, independent viewpoint, and timeless quality, and he is the creator of the magnificent illustrations for the picture book edition of Dylan’s song, Man Gave Names to All the Animals, which also includes an accompanying CD of the original recording.

WHAT: In Thunder Birds, Jim Arnosky has created a breathtaking, detailed, and eye-opening beginner’s field guide — this time about winged predators. Young nature-lovers can bring the wilderness right into their room with this gorgeously illustrated compendium of birds with their tremendous wingspans, razor-sharp claws, and powerful beaks. With more than sixty life-size winged predators to investigate — from hawks to herons, from ospreys to owls — Thunder Birds draws out kids’ inner explorer and helps imaginations take flight. It’s the perfect gift for a budding naturalist, animal lover, or artist.

EVENT INFORMATION: Jim Arnosky demonstrates how he creates his amazing art, talks about his animal adventures, performs a sing-along with his guitar, and signs copies of his books.
