Author Rebecca Weiss and Photographer Mark Fuller will host a ‘Meet the Authors’ event for their new book, “Birds of Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley” at Explore Booksellers on Main Street in Aspen on Thursday, December 20, from 5:30 – 7:00 PM. 

“Birds of Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley” is a comprehensive narrative and photographic guide to 155 common bird species found between Independence Pass and Glenwood Springs, including the Crystal and Fryingpan River valleys.  The book includes a map of local birding hotspots and essays on birding techniques, local habitats, and other topics.  Out since July 2018, the book has been on local bestseller lists ever since.

The event will feature a brief presentation at 6:00 PM including a brief overview of the book’s design and purpose, a visual tour of some iconic local birds, and discussion with the audience.  Attendees will have the opportunity to buy the book and get a signed and inscribed copy from the authors.  With Christmas on the way, don’t miss this chance to stock up on “Birds of Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley” for all the birders among your friends and family.  Light refreshments will be served.
