LIBRARY BOOK GROUP DISCUSSION
August 19, 2021
Please join us for a book discussion of The Feather Thief by Kirk Wallace Johnson on Wednesday, September 1, at 5PM. Kirk Wallace Johnson was waist high in a river in northern New Mexico when his fly- fishing guide told him about the heist. He was soon consumed by the strange case of the feather thief. What would possess a person to steal dead birds? Had Edwin paid the price for his crime? What became of the missing skins? In his search for answers, Johnson was catapulted into a years-long, worldwide investigation. The gripping story of a bizarre and shocking crime, and one man’s relentless pursuit of justice, The Feather Thief is also a fascinating exploration of obsession, and man’s destructive instinct to harvest the
beauty of nature.*
The group will meet outside of the library, weather permitting, or in the Michigan room. There are several copies of the book on hold at the library available for cardholders to check out.
