Deborah Cramer Author-The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey (Plymouth)

July 7 @ 1:00 pm

Celebration, reception and book signing to follow presentation. Free refreshments. Held in the Russell Gallery. Please Register Here.
Deborah Cramer lives with her family at the edge of a salt marsh in Gloucester, Massachusetts, where each year she awaits the arrival of horseshoe crabs and alewives in tidal creeks, and the passage of migrating sandpipers and herons. She writes about science, nature, and the environment.
Cramer has written three books, Great Waters: An Atlantic Passage, Smithsonian Ocean: Our Water Our World, and The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey.   The Narrow Edge received the Best Book Award from the National Academies of Science, the Rachel Carson Book Award from the Society of Environmental Journalists, the Reed Award from the Southern Environmental Law Center, and was designated a “must read” by the Massachusetts Book Award.  The Narrow Edge has now been translated into Spanish and Chinese.
Cramer was awarded an Audubon A from the Massachusetts Audubon Society, “recognizing exceptional action on behalf of the living environment,” and has been named by the Sierra Club as an outstanding contemporary writer “whose words can make us reconsider or better appreciate our relationship to the natural world.”
