When things get back to normal, I'm eager to give illustrated talks about "The Real James Bond" in person again. Until then, I am doing talks via Zoom.
I can discuss such Bond-related topics as Bond's adventures in the Caribbean, his life-long summers on Mount Desert Island, Birds of the West Indies, and -- of course -- Ian Fleming and 007.
I also like to talk a bit about the real-life ornithologist spies that Bond knew.
I speak to all sorts of groups -- museums, libraries, birding clubs, museums, and more.
The launch event for my book was at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. I was a keynote (Zoom) speaker at NJ Audubon's Cape May Spring Weekend in May.
My free Zoom talk about the real James Bond and Caribbean conservation is presently on view in the author's forum at the U.K.'s Birdfair.
I have presentations scheduled through the early summer of 2021, including a Zoom talk for two major Chicago birding groups in October and a talk in person (I hope) about Bond and his birds for the Linnean Society at the American Museum of Natural History in February.
I will speak at the Acadia Birding Festival and other Mount Desert Island venues next June.
Email me about topics and fees, and maybe we can schedule something.
Proceeds from all talks go to The Nature Conservancy's Caribbean Initiative in the real James Bond's honor.
