Event Details

New York author Eli J. Knapp brings his fun, family-friendly book of essays The Delightful Horror of Family Birding to the beautiful Tracy Aviary. Join Eli for a reading and discussion of his birding adventures across the country (and the world) and working to instill a love of nature in the next generation.

From the mating grounds of Ecuador’s cock-of-the-rock to the phoebe nest just outside his back door in western New York, Eli J. Knapp explores the roller-coaster ride of sharing nature with the next generation. Throughout each essay in this captivating collection, Knapp delights in unraveling ecological puzzles, injecting humor at every turn and learning vital lessons as he takes on everything but cynicism. Along the way, he laughs at misfortune, marvels at nature’s mysteries, and learns from all his fellow travelers. Whether traveling solo or with his students or children, Knapp levels his gaze on the birds that share our skies, showing how these feathered wonders can be a portal to deeper relationships, ecological understanding, and newfound joy.

Eli J. Knapp is professor of Intercultural Studies and Biology at Houghton College and director of the Houghton in Tanzania program. Knapp is a regular contributor to Bird Watcher’s Digest, New York State Conservationist, and other publications. An avid birder, hiker, and kayaker, he lives in Fillmore, New York, with his wife and children.

This FREE event is presented by Torrey House Press and the King’s English Bookshop. Pre-order the book by visiting the King’s English website or calling the store, and specify that you will be attending the event.

Just hours after being sworn in, President Joe Biden signed an executive order calling for a review of the boundaries for Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments. The monuments—designated by Barack Obama in 2016 and Bill Clinton in 1996—were reduced by roughly 2 million acres by former president Donald Trump, and the executive order is seen as move towards restoring the original boundaries.⁠

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Pick up our Jan/Feb issue at your local grocer and read the full letter. ❤️

Mary's last-minute holiday gift ideas from last year are still as true and relevant today...⁠

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠

There was never a time there wasn’t Mary Malouf. Until now. Today, Mary died when a rogue wave swept her out to sea off the coast of Northern California. Only she – perhaps the world’s foremost lover of Bronte, BBC mysteries and, of course, Moby Dick – would appreciate such poetic drama.

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.” — Mary Brown Malouf. Ooops. Herman Mellville.
