Blacksburg Books presents an Author Talk with Wildlife Biologist Don Linzey on Thursday, May 30, 2024.

"Rescued!" tells the story of how one man shared his love of animals and passion for wildlife research with his two sons, and later inspired them in choosing their career paths. In this memoir, Linzey recounts how his boyhood interest in animals developed into a passionate and successful career as a wildlife biologist, a job which for him often included bringing his work home in the form of orphaned gopher tortoises, hog-nosed snakes, flying squirrels, raccoons, and more. For his two sons, growing up in a household filled with these many creatures and frequently joining their father on research trips gave them a unique childhood filled with adventure, humor, and a deep love and respect for the beauty of nature.

Linzey will present a slideshow and take questions from the audience.

Blacksburg Books is located at 401 South Main Street, Suite 106 in Blacksburg, VA.
