With many apologies for the short notice, I wanted to point out that there will be a one-day conference on John James Audubon tomorrow at the Rensselaerville Institute, near Albany, NY. Events will include a roundtable conference on Audubon's books, as well as the premiere of a new PBS film "John James Audubon: Drawn from Nature."
"A $40 registration fee is required to attend the 1 p.m. conference, hosted by the Edmund Niles Huyck Preserve. If you're just interested in the film, $5 buys you entry to a second screening at 8:30 p.m." The conference was organized by Roswell Eldridge, a local Audubon enthusiast who will be showing off his ten volume set of Audubon "octavos" (seven volumes of the Birds, three of the Quadrupeds).
I'm pretty sorry to miss this event, but I will certainly look forward to the PBS film.
