The Official NYSEC's Event Announcement! (Throwback Thursday)
One month ago (September 18 2018) I announced here on Blogger that I would be making a presentation at The New York Society for Ethical Culture (NYSEC) re certain birds who spend time in NYC and I just realized (this morning) that my event is posted on their web-site!
A copy of their site's announcement can be seen below:
Speaking of Science - Patricia Youngquist: Words in Our Beak
Date: Monday, November 26, 2018 -
6:30pm to 8:00pm
Location: Adler Study, Room 514
Admission: Members $5, Guests $10
Studying the wild birds in NYC and surrounding areas has important implications for understanding the similarities of human behavior and the behaviors of members within the avian community. The topics I will cover in my presentation include how birds teach us about the human race in such matters (to name a few) as finding our voice, ways in which we compensate our behaviors to meet our needs, accepting our physical appearances, and how bullying impacts our lives.
Patricia Youngquist is the author of the three volume “Words In Our Beak” book series, published by Ingram Spark, in which stories are told from the bird’s-eye perspective of Cam, a female cardinal that regularly visited her rooftop garden located near NYSEC and is illustrated with her own photographs. Prior to publishing this series, Youngquist published an article on Google Mapping for Contribute Magazine as well as over a thousand posts on her blog (thelastleafgardener.com). It has been listed (by feed_spot) in the top one hundred urban blogs. Her earlier impressionist and kaleidoscopic photography has been exhibited in NYC which led to radio interviews with John Montone’s New York for 1010 WINS and The AL Lewis Show with Karen Lewis for WBAI. All of her work, including these radio interviews, can be found on her website, patriciayoungquist.com
I am truly honored to have this opportunity and I thank Maggie Determann (Membership Coordinator) and Jesús Torres Vazquez for their efforts in making it happen.
Also many thanks also to John Gasdaska for rehearsing my presentation with me over the past several weeks! Now, I'm hoping it is a success!
