The Vassar library has created a guide to the book at http://libguides.vassar.edu/fourfish. Please take a moment to look at the guide for information about the book and its author as well as a great deal of other information, included related books and articles, information about eating sustainably, agencies and data about conservation and fish, local organizations, and more.
There are three events in September that connect to Four Fish that I wanted to mention to you.
- Sawdust Mountain, an exhibition of the works of photographer Eirik Johnson, will be on display at Vassar's Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center (FLLAC) starting in early September. Several of the images in this exhibition are concerned with the salmon industry in the Pacific northwest. Mr. Johnson will deliver a lecture connected with Sawdust Mountain on September 7, followed by a reception in FLLAC.
- John Long, professor of biology, is giving the keynote address at Fall Convocation on September 12. Professor Long's work is on vertebrate biomechanics and focuses on — you guessed it — fish. His recent book, Darwin's Devices, gives an account of his use of evolving robots in his research, much of which is done with Vassar students.
- Paul Greenberg, author of Four Fish, will be giving a lecture here at Vassar on September 20.
I hope to see many of you at these events. Meanwhile, let me know what you think of Four Fish!
