    Christian Cooper is a New York Times best-selling author with his debut memoir, Better Living Through Birding.  He is also the host of and a consulting producer for National Geographic TV's hit series "Extraordinary Birder with Christian Cooper."  Practically born with a pair of binoculars in his hands, he served as president of the Harvard Ornithological Club in his college days.  Currently, as a vice president of NYC Audubon, he advocates for greater, safer access to green spaces for all, with a focus on outreach to youth in underserved communities.  A longtime activist on issues of racial justice and LGBTQ equality, Christian Cooper combined his passions in the graphic short story "It’s a Bird” from DC Comics.  He continues to seek synergy at the intersections of storytelling, progressivism, and environmentalism.

    This program is a collaboration of Albert Wisner Public Library and Orange County Audubon.  It will feature a conversation with Christian Cooper, followed by Q&A from the audience.  Christian Cooper will then sign copies of his book, which will be available for purchase on-site through our local bookseller for the event, The Book & Nook Bookshop

    Christian Cooper’s book is every bit as wondrous and captivating as the birds he so adores - a joyous tour across subcultures and continents, and a masterful account of a life full of song, full of heart, and fully lived.”  - Ed Yong, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of An Immense World

    “An uplifting and inspiring read. Christian Cooper is a national treasure.” - Van Jones, New York Times bestselling author and host of The Van Jones Show

    “Utterly captivating, a marvel of storytelling . . . Christian Cooper’s memoir is tender, honest, funny, wise, poignant, piercing, and infused with brilliant observations on the nature of birds, humans, and his own extraordinary personal journey.”  - Jennifer Ackerman, New York Times bestselling author of The Genius of Birds
