Following her Feb. 1 Town Hall talk on wildlife-conservation photography, award-winning photographer Suzi Eszterhas introduces a series of books aimed at a younger crowd. Her new Eye on the Wild photo-book series, for children ages 4-7, follows the lives of baby animals from birth to adulthood as they grow up in the wild. The books—Gorilla, Cheetah, Lion, Sea Otter, Brown Bear, and Orangutan—are written and photographed by Eszterhas, who presents all aspects of the animals’ lives with adorable and unprecedented close-up photos of family groups in their natural habitats, along with accompanying conservation information. At this special Town Hall Family event, Eszterhas shares child-friendly stories of her adventures in the field: From capturing a lion cub’s first meeting with his dad to rescuing tiny baby sloths, Eszterhas’ tales will delight kids and parents alike. Presented by Town Hall as part of its Family series, with University Book Store, and sponsored by ParentMap.
