Birdmania, Bernd Brunner Book Events

Bernd Brunner, author of Birdmania: A Remarkable Passion for Birds, has several upcoming events across the United States. Brunner is is an award-winning writer whose work has been published in Lapham’s Quarterly, the Paris Review, the Wall Street Journal Speakeasy, and the Huffington Post.

His latest book, Birdmania, is packed with intriguing facts and exquisite and rare artwork, showcasing an eclectic and fascinating selection of bird devotees who would do anything for their feathered friends, including: Karl Russ, the pioneer of “bird rooms,” who had difficulty renting lodgings when landlords realized who he was; George Lupton, a wealthy Yorkshire lawyer, who commissioned the theft of uniquely patterned eggs every year for twenty years from the same unfortunate female guillemot who never had a chance to raise a chick; George Archibald, who performed mating dances for an endangered whooping crane called Tex to encourage her to lay; and Mervyn Shorthouse, who posed as a wheelchair-bound invalid to steal an estimated ten thousand eggs from the Natural History Museum at Tring.
