In The Wonder of Birds author Jim Robbins makes the case that birds provide our most vital connection to nature. “They compel us to look to the skies, both literally and metaphorically; draw us out into nature to seek their beauty; and let us experience vicariously what it is like to be weightless.” Join the BRIT Reads book club in March as we read and discuss our first book about our avian neighbors.
