Virtual Author Talk: Erica Ferencik & Sy Montgomery
Award-winning author Erica Ferencik (Girl In Ice) and bestselling author Sy Montgomery (The Hawk’s Way) discuss their latest new books on Wednesday, May 18 at 7PM via Zoom.
About The Books: In Girl In Ice, an American linguist is tasked to go to a remote climate science research center off the coast of Greenland where a young girl has thawed from the ice alive speaking a language no one understands. In The Hawk’s Way: Encounters with Fierce Beauty, Montgomery — a vegetarian animal-lover — takes up falconry to get close to the wild hearts of these magnificent birds of prey.
About The Authors: There is nowhere on earth Erica Ferencik won’t go to take you out of your head and into the great wild world. An award-winning novelist, Ferencik writes adventure novels featuring women who brave not only internal struggles but face extreme challenges in their environment: remote forests, steaming jungles, and desolated icescapes. To research The River at Night, Into the Jungle, and her latest, Girl In Ice, Ferencik ventured deep into the remote forests of the Allagash Territory in Northern Maine, rafted the Amazon River in the jungles of Peru, and explored the desolate iceberg-packed fjords of Greenland. To research her 33 books, Sy Montgomery has been chased by an angry silverback gorilla in Zaire, swum with octopuses, electric eels and piranhas, and worked in a pit crawling with 18,000 snakes in Manitoba. She is a four-time national bestseller, perhaps best known for her The Soul of an Octopus, a finalist for the National Book Award.
