Join author Marina Richie, winner of the 2024 John Burroughs Medal, for a photo-filled presentation that includes stories and excerpts from her award-winning book, Halcyon Journey: In Search of the Belted Kingfisher (illustrated by Newport artist Ram Papish and published by Oregon State University Press).

The book also earned a 2022 National Outdoor Book Award and a 2022 Foreword Indies award. Richie’s narrative weaves natural history, myth and memoir to illuminate the jay-sized bird of the headfirst dive and rattling cry.

Ultimately, she reveals an inviting pathway for all seeking kinship with nature nearby.
