The Friends of Ojibway Prairie is hosting a free online event featuring Canadian best-selling author Julia Zarankin talking about her book Field Notes from an Unintentional Birder held in partnership with Windsor’s Biblioasis Bookshop.

Zarankin is a writer, birder, (occasional) birdsplainer, lecturer, and culture-tour-leader based in Toronto. Her writing has appeared in Audubon, Sierra Club Magazine, Canadian Geographic, The Walrus, Hazlitt, The Letters Page, Cottage Life, Orion Magazine, Threepenny Review, Prism International, Antioch Review, Birding Magazine, Maisonneuve, The New Quarterly, Ontario Nature and The Globe and Mail. She was shortlisted for the CBC Short Story Prize (2020), won the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival nonfiction prize and has been first runner-up for PRISM International’s nonfiction prize, a finalist for the TNQ Edna Staebler Personal Essay Contest and twice longlisted for the CBC Nonfiction Prize. Julia’s birding/life aspirations: “To sport the hairdo of a Cedar Waxwing, acquire the wardrobe of a Northern Flicker and develop the confidence of a Ross’s Goose.”

“We’ve seen more and more people take to the trails of the Ojibway Prairie Complex over the last few years, which is great because we all know the natural therapeutic benefits of connecting with nature,” said Bill Roesel, Friends of Ojibway Prairie board president.

It will take place Tuesday, January 19th at 7pm on the Friends of Ojibway Prairie’s Facebook Page.

Friends of Ojibway Prairie Members will receive 20% off Zarankin’s book from Biblioasis Bookshop.
