Catesby Commerative Trust Book Launch

April 24, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Catesby Trust’s new book The Curious Mr. Catesby: a “truly ingenious” naturalist explores new worlds is available now.  Get more information at www.catesbytrust.org.

The book is being introduced at a series of events in the US and the UK.  Programs will be held in April and May, in Washington DC, New York, Cincinnati, Richmond, Kiawah Island, Charleston, Savannah, Atlanta, San Francisco, London & Sudbury.  Detailed information on each location is below.  If reservations are noted as being required, please contact Janice Stanley at stellayaris@gmail.com.

Dr. Charles Nelson will speak at every event, joined by Leslie Overstreet at all US locations (except Savannah, Atlanta and San Francisco, where David Elliott will speak).  UK speakers will be Sir Ghillean Prance and Dr. Nelson.  Brief biographies are shown below.

There will be question and answer panels as well as book signings at every location, involving the speakers and other authors. Each venue plans to display Addison Publication’s new version of Catesby’s Natural History based on facsimiles of his original watercolors at Windsor Castle.
