Description: If you haven’t heard of Bird and Moon Science and Nature Cartoons this is the presentation for you! But what about those who know about Bird and Moon … then this is the presentation for you! Rosemary Mosco is a wonderful naturalist who puts her naturalist eye into cartoons that are fun and also accurate. You will smile, if not laugh at the antics of birds and other wildlife in her renderings … all based on what she has seen. We will also learn more about Rosemary, her interest in the natural world and how she is inspired to put pen to paper. Really looking forward to this presentation, hope everyone will enjoy.
Rosemary Mosco is a science writer and cartoonist. Her Bird and Moon nature comics were the subject of an award-winning exhibit at Cornell's Museum of the Earth, and they're collected in the book, "Birding Is My Favorite Video Game", a 2019 ALA Great Graphic Novel for Teens. She co-wrote the New York Times best selling book, "The Atlas Obscura Explorer's Guide for the World's Most Adventurous Kid" and wrote a graphic novel about the solar system. She speaks at birding festivals and nature clubs. Otherwise, she spends a lot of time out in the field, taking pictures of eye-wateringly tiny butterflies. Website
