Oregon Nature Writer, Journalist and Environmentalist Marina Richie

The Umpqua Valley Audubon Society and Roseburg Public Library invite the community to a Facebook Live streaming event with Oregon nature writer, journalist and environmentalist Marina Richie. She will create a visual journey featuring “Halcyon Journey: In Search of the Belted Kingfisher,” a first-person narrative threading natural history, myth and memoir and winner of a 2022 National Outdoor Book Award. Richie will read excerpts and delve into the secretive behaviors of North America’s beloved fishing bird and the American Birding Association’s 2023 Bird of the Year.

A moderated Q&A session will follow the presentation. Questions may be submitted before the event to Library staff at library@cityofroseburg.org or 541-492-7051. Alternately, viewers who have a Facebook account may post questions during the event by commenting on the live stream. To view the live stream, go to Facebook.com/RoseburgLibrary. A Facebook account is not required.
