My new popular science book, A Pocket Guide to Pigeon Watching: Getting to Know the World's Most Misunderstood Bird, is officially out! It's full of fun facts, jokes, and wild tales. Booklist called it "the most perfect of popular science titles"(!)
If you are looking for a joyful read, I suggest Expedition Backyard, by @RosemaryMosco. This delightful graphic novel is perfect for nature lovers, artists, and adventurers! Mole and Vole will capture your heart and fill your brain with info! 5⭐️ #LibrarianSummerReading
The Supreme Court just overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. This is devastating, an absolute national tragedy. But know that this isn't the end of this fight, that activists and organizers are diligently working to continue access to safe abortion. A thread:
Just 17% of Americans in the May CNN poll said they'd be happy to see Roe vs. Wade overturned, with 12% saying they'd be satisfied, 21% that they'd be dissatisfied, 36% that they'd be angry, and 14% that they wouldn't care.
ATTENTION: New sweet little babies have arrived.
Want a baby?
A sweet little fluffy chaos baby?
A tiny furry angel with knifey feet?
They're in Philadelphia and should be ready to adopt in a month and a half-ish.
I will believe that fossil fuel companies are making good-faith attempts to fix climate change when they stop their concerted efforts to make the science sound uncertain in school textbooks in *checks notes* 2022
I'm so grateful for @mtyrhetoric's kind review of A Pocket Guide to Pigeon Watching for the @ABA's latest issue of Birding. It was thoughtful and beautifully alliterative ("peristeronic paean"!). An excerpt:
Just about two months until the paperback for Living in Data hits the shelves.
If you're someone who writes a thing or records a thing or produces a thing and you'd like to talk to me about the book - please get in touch!
If you're someone who teaches about data, or creative coding, or hippopotamus evasion, Living in Data is out in paperback on August 30th from @PicadorUSA - just in time for the fall semester!!
We're thrilled to have @RosemaryMosco and @binglinhu for our virtual picture book hour, sharing EXPEDITION BACKYARD! This is a free, all ages virtual event, and we can't wait to get excited about nature together - see you on 7/6! bit.ly/3wYxG6N
