Live Author Interview with Bestselling Author Sy Montgomery on The Hawk’s Way

Sy Montgomery, the New York Times bestselling author of The Soul of an Octopus, will join Living on Earth radio Host Steve Curwood on Monday, April 25 at 5:30 PM Eastern for an in-depth conversation about her new book, The Hawk’s Way: Encounters with Fierce Beauty (May 3, 2022; Atria Books), a celebration of one of nature’s most perfect and mysterious creatures.

There are two ways to attend:

About the book:
From the first moment Jazz, a feisty, four-year-old, female Harris’s hawk, swept down from a tree and landed on Sy’s leather gloved fist, Sy fell under the hawk’s magnetic spell. Over the next few years, Sy spent more time with these magnificent creatures, getting to know their extraordinary abilities and instincts. They are deeply emotional animals, quick to show anger and frustration, and can hold a grudge for years. But they are also loyal and intensely aware of their surroundings. In The Hawk’s Way, Sy passionately and vividly reveals the wondrous world of hawks and what they can teach us about nature, life, and love.

About the hosts:
The nationally-syndicated public radio show & podcast Living on Earth presents this conversation with Sy Montgomery and Host Steve Curwood alongside NH Audubon, New Hampshire Public Radio, and the UMass Boston School for the Environment as part of the Living on Earth Book Club. The week following the event, Living on Earth will feature the edited interview in its May 6, 2022 broadcast to 250+ stations nationwide.


Those who attended our September Annual Meeting will recall how engaging Sy was as our keynote speaker. We are thrilled to host her again to hear about her work with hawks and support her in this new book launch!
