On Tuesday, March 6 beginning at 5 p.m. the West Tisbury Library is hosting a talk by Virginia Carmichael, coauthor of The Albatross and the Fish (University of Texas Press, 2011).

The albatross family is currently the most threatened bird group in the world and in their extensively researched book, Robin W. Doughty and Virginia Carmichael tell the story of how its potentially catastrophic extinction has been interrupted by an unlikely alliance of governments, conservation groups, and fishermen.

Ms. Carmichael’s previous book, published in 1993, was the book Framing History: The Rosenberg Story and the Cold War. She is a former associate professor who taught world postcolonial literature and U.S. ethnicity and minority literature at the University of Montana. She currently lives in Woods Hole.

The event is free and refreshments will be served.
