Behind the Scenes of the Peterson Moth Guides
Presented by Seabrooke Leckie
Monday, April 25, 2016 – 7 p.m.

How many field guides do you own? Have you ever wondered what goes into making one? Seabrooke Leckie will share her experiences with the creation of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America, from idea to contract to publication, and compare the unique challenges presented by the follow-up guide to moths of the southeast. She'll also offer tips, drawn from lessons learned while working on the books, on how to improve your expertise on moth identification (or any other group).

Seabrooke Leckie is a freelance biologist and writer, co-author of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America. She lives in eastern Ontario, Canada, at a country house where she can enjoy nature just by stepping into her backyard. Her current undertakings include a new Peterson moth guide for the southeast (target release date: late 2017), pursuing publication of her novels and a toddler.

This program is free for Austin Butterfly Forum members, but there is a $10 admission for non-members. For more information about the Austin Butterfly Forum, visit our website:
