‘Wild Rescues’ on tap at Winslow book shop

Join author Amanda Mander in celebration of the launch of her new book “Wild Rescues: Amazing Stories from a Wildlife Shelter” at Eagle Harbor Book Company at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 13.

She will read stories from this book for kids, joined by West Sound Wildlife Shelter representatives and one of their animal ambassadors.

Mander is a passionate wildlife rescuer and travels the world volunteering to help animals. She is the author of “Looking Twice: Beautiful/Ugly,” a book of themed poems and photographs, and “The Diplomat’s Daughter,” a story anthologized in “Secret Histories: Stories of Courage, Risk, and Revelation.”

Her short story,“The Remover of Obstacles,” won the 2013 Traveller’s Tales Gold Solas Award for best love story.

However, this is Mander’s first book for middle readers. She has four children of her own and lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, their dog Luigi, and a pond fish.

Urban wildlife has sparked an interest in our culture resulting in many magazine articles and even shows like BBC’s “Planet Earth II” that acknowledge the challenges in living close to wildlife. Through entertaining narratives and fascinating animal facts, this book encourages 8- to 12-year-olds to empathize with the wild animals in their neighborhoods. Empowering middle readers to become wildlife stewards can lead to a new generation of living in harmony and protecting our wild neighbors.
