Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Gulf, Jack E. Davis, is back with another sweeping environmental history of America’s Bird!

Davis’s new book, The Bald Eagle is an astonishing work of cultural and natural history that, once more, forces us to reconsider the story of America through the lens of our relationship to the natural world.

Tombolo Books is thrilled to host Davis to tell us all about one of our country’s most iconic symbols and what eagles can teach us about America’s tenuous relationship to the environment through nearly five centuries. Davis will be joined in conversation by the Tampa Bay Times Book Critic, Colette Bancroft!

Jack E. Davis is the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Gulf: The Making of An American Sea and An Everglades Providence: Marjory Stoneman Douglas and the American Environmental Century. The Rothman Family Chair in the Humanities at the University of Florida, he lives in Florida and New Hampshire.

Colette Bancroft has been the book editor at the Tampa Bay Times since 2007. In addition to writing reviews and interviewing authors, she directs the annual Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading. She served two terms on the board of the National Book Critics Circle. Bancroft earned degrees in English from the University of South Florida and the University of Florida, and she wishes she had finished her dissertation on the novels of Raymond Chandler.

Presented by Tombolo Books.
