The Feather Thief | Kirk Wallace Johnson

This page-turner combines a true crime story with the history of the collection, exploitation, and sometimes extinction of birds with beautiful plumage. The crime: the theft of 299 rare bird specimens from the British Museum of Natural History by an American college student bent on turning them into salmon fishing flies. Join us for camaraderie and a great discussion led by Helen Huntley.
