I am pleased to announce that the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia will host the official book launch for "The Real James Bond" on Tuesday evening, March 3.
Bond worked for the Academy from 1926 into the 1980s. The Academy also published the first edition of his "Birds of the West Indies" in 1936.
A copy of the landmark book will be among the Bond items and other rarities on display. Exciting details to follow.
The Academy event will be the first of several book talks in March, April and May, including two major birding festivals.
Watch this space for more information.
