Author and Naturalist Kenn Kaufman
[September 2012]—Kenn Kaufman, naturalist and originator of the Kaufman field guides series, has just released a guide specific to nature lovers living in or visiting New England, published by Houghton-Mifflin. Kenn will be at the Library on Monday, October 22 at 3:00 pm for an introduction to this invaluable new guide. Kaufman appears as part of the Library’s Authors on Stage series. This event is cosponsored by Staying Put in New Canaan and takes place in the Lamb Room.
The Field Guide to Nature in New England is the latest in Kaufman’s best-selling and popular series of nature guides. A lifelong naturalist and one of the world’s best known bird experts, Kaufman has been passionate about nature since a young child. As a teenager he hitch-hiked around North America pursuing birds, which led to the publication of Kingbird Highway, his memoir of the experience and a classic among birders and naturalists.
In addition to his work on the field guides, Kaufman is also a Field Editor for numerous nature publications including Audubon Magazine, Bird Watching and Wild Bird, among others. Kenn and his wife Kimberly, Executive Director of Ohio’s Black Swamp Bird Observatory, have worked together on many projects to foster interest in nature and to protect natural resources.
