Prolific author Rick Wright will share his expertise and read passages from
his forthcoming book, the Peterson Reference Guide to North American

Rick has quite a varied and interesting background - a native of southeast
Nebraska, studied French, German, philosophy, and life sciences at the
University of Nebraska, where he worked in the bird collections of the
State Museum and served as teaching assistant to Paul Johnsgard. After a
detour to Harvard Law School, Rick took the M.A. and Ph.D. in German at
Princeton University. His years as an academic included appointments as
assistant professor of German at the University of Illinois, reader/scholar
at Princeton University’s Index of Christian Art, and associate professor
of medieval studies at Fordham University. Among his scholarly publications
are two books on the Latin and German animal literature of the late Middle
Ages. He is also the author of the American Birding Association’s field
guides to birds of New Jersey and of Arizona. *Rick is also a guide for
VENT birding tours, offering wonderful "Birds & Art" tours in various
European countries.*  A prolific contributor to the birding literature and
a sought-after lecturer, Rick lives with his wife, Alison Beringer, and
their chocolate lab, Gellert, in Bloomfield, New Jersey.

Lectures are free and open to the public. This series has been made
possible by the support of Claude and Lucienne Bloch.

Hope to see you there!
