Authors on McFarland, in collaboration with Orange County Audubon Society, present: Christian Cooper, author of “Better Living Through Birding”

June 8 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

Christian Cooper is a New York Times best-selling author, with his debut memoir, Better Living Through Birding.  He is also the host and a consulting producer for National Geographic TV’s hit series “Extraordinary Birder with Christian Cooper.”

Practically born with a pair of binoculars in his hands, he served as president of the Harvard Ornithological Club in his college days.  Currently, as a vice president of NYC Audubon, he advocates for greater, safer access to green spaces for all, with a focus on outreach to youth in underserved communities.  A longtime activist on issues of racial justice and LGBTQ equality, Christian Cooper combined his passions in the BLM graphic short story “It’s a Bird” from DC Comics.  He continues to seek synergy at the intersections of storytelling, progressivism, and environmentalism.
