The Devil's Cormorant
6:30 p.m. 7:30 p.m. Lectures, Films, & Book Talks
Maine Maritime Museum in collaboration with the Patten Free Library present The Devil's Cormorant A Natural History.
In this wonderfully written book Author Richard King follows the mysterious cormorant around the world and through the seasons. The cormorant is a perfect lens through which to view world history, culture, art, science, and environmental law. These birds are both friend and foe, protected and hated. Long a symbol of gluttony, greed, bad luck, and evil, the cormorant has led a troubled existence in human history, myth, and literature. In The Devil's Cormorant, Richard King takes us back in time and around the world to show us the history, nature, ecology, and economy of the world's most misunderstood waterfowl.
This FREE lecture takes place in the community room of the Patten Free Library in Bath.
