Writer Helen MacDonald, the author of the award-winning, New York Times bestselling memoir H Is for Hawk, will be making an appearance at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center with Sky Walker and Nicco — two resident hawks — in tow. The ticketed talk and signing will come complete with a falconing demonstration and a signed copy of either H Is for Hawk ($21), about MacDonald’s adoption of a goshawk shortly after her father’s unexpected death, or her newly reprinted poetry collection Shaler’s Fish ($27). From each ticket price, $5 will be donated to the nature center.
7 p.m. April 12 at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, Milwaukee. $21, $27. boswellbooks.com.
