MPFN November Meeting


We're just ​1 night away from the November Meeting of the
Midland-Penetanguishene Field Naturalists
Thurs. ​Nov. 16​, 2017 7:30 PM Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre
MPFN Members FREE; Non-members and guests are asked to consider making a $5 donation
The Guest Speaker will be best-selling author Steve Burrows whose Birder Murder mystery series is a favourite of your own MPFN Book Club. The Book Club is reading his latest, "A Shimmer of Hummingbirds" together as their book for November.
Steve Burrows is an award-winning Canadian mystery writer, journalist and past recipient of a "Nature Writer of the Year" award from BBC Wildlife. His 2014 novel, A Siege of Bitterns, received widespread critical acclaim upon its release and was named one of the top 100 books of 2014 by The Globe and Mail before going on to win the 2015 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel. Born and raised in the UK, Burrows moved to Ontario with his family following grammar school. After completing an English degree at York University, Burrows moved to Hong Kong where he served as editor of the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society magazine and contributing field editor for Asian Geographic. He currently lives in Oshawa, Ontario.
Steve will be bringing along copies of all 4 books that have been published in the series. (A 5th book, A Tiding of Magpies, will be published in May 2018. Maybe we'll get an advance peek). The books will be available at $15 each, cash or cheque. Cash preferred if possible. Steve will be more than happy to sign any books of his that you already have on your bookshelves at home.
As usual we will be fundraising by selling our 50/50 tickets and our MPFN Magic Bean Soup.
