Book Launch – The Feather Thief

The Feather Thief: Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century

NHMLA is proud to celebrate the launch of Kirk Wallace Johnson’s new book, The Feather Thief - A rollicking true-crime adventure about a young American that stole hundreds of rare bird specimens from the British Natural History Museum in Tring. His book is a thought-provoking exploration on the debt we owe institutions that house precious collections and the human drive to possess natural beauty.

This evening Kirk will be interviewed by NHMLA President Dr. Lori Bettison-Varga on The Feather Thief. Their conversation will be followed by a Q&A and book signing. Special Museum collections highlighting this discussion will also be on display between 6 -7pm. Books are available for pre-order and purchase night-of the program.
