Description: 

The Brattleboro Literary Festival hostws this conversation with American researcher and conservationist Jonathan Slaght, on Friday, March 12, at 5:00 pm, for a discussion of his book Owls of the Eastern Ice, which was long-listed for the National Book award in 2020.

The book documents his quest to find and save the world’s largest owl, the Blakiston’s fish owl, which is almost 2 feet tall and has a wingspan of 6 feet. Slaght takes us to the Eastern Russia, where we join his small team for late-night monitoring missions, mad dashes across thawing rivers, drink vodka with mystics, hermits, and scientists, and listen to fireside tales of Amur tigers.

Jonathan was in conversation with Charlie Rattigan, an award-winning documentary producer and the executive director of the Vermont Institute of Natural Science, known for their birds of prey rehabilitation.
