After stumbling upon a book of photographs depicting extinct animals, author and UW-Eau Claire English professor B.J. Hollars became fascinated by the creatures that are no longer with us; specifically, extinct birds.  How, he wondered, could we preserve so beautifully on film what we’ve failed to preserve in life? Join Hollars for a presentation from Flock Together: A Love Affair with Extinct Birds as well as a conversation on what we can do to save threatened species, as well as ourselves.

B.J. Hollars is the author of several books, most recently Flock Together: A Love Affair With Extinct Birds, From the Mouths of Dogs: What Our Pets Teach Us About Life, Death, and Being Human, as well as a collection of essays, This Is Only A Test. Hollars serves as a mentor for Creative Nonfiction and the  founder and executive director of the Chippewa Valley Writers Guild. An associate professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, he lives a simple existence with his wife, their children, and their dog.

This event is part of our Brown Bag Series – a 60-minute educational lecture over the lunch hour to stimulate your brain. Feel free to bring your lunch and multitask!
