Please join us for a program by Frank Izaguirre, Editor of the American Birding Association’s Birding magazine, as he discusses how field guides have influenced the way people think about the world around them. Izaguirre will discuss early natural history texts, and consider how these books influenced the emergence of the field guide genre. He will discuss Roger Tory Peterson’s Field Guide to the Birds, examining how Peterson’s template became the standard for the modern field guide, as well as contemporary field guide authors like David Allen Sibley and the future of field guides.
