Award-winning author Helen Macdonald is coming to the Joan C. Edwards Playhouse to discuss her “genre-defying” piece of literature, H is for Hawk. Her lecture is taking place Saturday, Feb. 4 @ 7:30 PM and is sure to leave audiences amazed at her personal journey.

H is for Hawk became an instant New York Times best seller and award-winning book, along with winning the 2014 Samuel Johnson Prize and the Costa Book Award.

Macdonald’s New York Times bestseller and award-winning sensation H is for Hawk took the literary world by storm, giving a surprising story about adopting one of nature’s most vicious predators to cope with the sudden loss of her photojournalist father. Her life changing journey to tame a fierce goshawk named Mabel – told with “searing emotional honesty and descriptive language that is unparalleled in modern literature” (Costa Book Award) – touched the hearts of millions.

While the premise of her memoir is simple, the story is exquisite. Retreating from the human world gave Macdonald the opportunity to receive a prescription for what ails her. Raising Mabel gave her a challenge and a chance to deal with her grief in her own way.

This book is both heart-wrenching and humorous, giving an unflinching account of bereavement along with giving insight and a unique take on the magnetism of an extraordinary beast from an outstanding writer; a divine take on a story of madness, history, and Macdonald’s “re-obsession” with creatures that have fascinated and terrified her since she was a girl.

In her transcendent voice, Macdonald will discuss her humorous yet unflinching account of personal transformation and the unique magnetism of an extraordinary animal. Purchase your book in advance at the Marshall University Bookstore (304-696-3622), or books will also be available for purchase and signing at the performance.

For this special ticket offer call 304-696-3326 and use the Little Victories code - FEATHERS.

H is for Hawk is sponsored by Trifecta Productions, WVHU, B97, WSAZ, The Herald Dispatch, Marshall University, and the Marshall Artists Series.
