Authors Among Us: Meet Writer Julia Zarankin

Wed Jun 9 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm | Digital Branch

Join us for an author talk and Q&A with Julia Zarankin.

Julia Zarankin is the author of Field Notes From An Unintentional Birder.

When Julia Zarankin saw her first red-winged blackbird at the age of thirty-five, she didn’t expect that it would change her life. Recently divorced and auditioning hobbies during a stressful career transition, she stumbled on birdwatching, initially out of curiosity for the strange breed of humans who wear multi-pocketed vests, carry spotting scopes and discuss the finer points of optics with disturbing fervour. What she never could have predicted was that she would become one of them. Not only would she come to identify proudly as a birder, but birding would ultimately lead her to find love, uncover a new language and lay down her roots.
