This fall, we continue our tradition of starting the academic year with a reading list from the current recipient of the Max A. Lavine Award for Excellence in Teaching. This year's winner--Dr. Jennifer Maki (Associate Professor, Chemistry)--will present the keynote speech for College Convocation on September 10.
Favorite or most influential books:
The Library and WellU are sponsoring a campus birding walk with noted author & ornithologist, Laura Erickson.
Laura's books include For the Birds: An Uncommon Guide (1994), Hawk Ridge: Minnesota's Birds of Prey (2012), and The National Geographic Pocket Guide to the Birds of North America (2013). Her most recent publication is Into the Nest: Intimate Views of the Courting, Parenting, and Family Lives of Familiar Birds (2015).
Laura is the host--on KUMD and other northland stations--of For the Birds, which is the longest-running radio show about birds and birding in the United States.
In 2014, Laura was given the Roger Tory Peterson Award--a lifetime achievement award from the American Birding Association.
