Event Description Date Time
Esther the Eaglet Book Signing at The Raptor Center


ESTHER THE EAGLET is a compelling, true account of a young eagle’s amazing rescue. The story unfolds at a pace that will keep readers of all ages engaged, and the real-life photographs create a sense that readers are actually there, helping with the rehabilitation. This is a heartwarming book that every animal lover should own.

The project began back in 2008, when an eaglet fell from its nest near the author's parents’ home in Osceola, Wisc. Gove-Berg’s parents found the eaglet hopping along the forest floor, so they called The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota. The Raptor Center rehabilitated the injured bird and later released it back into the wild. Gove-Berg felt so inspired by the eaglet that she wrote a children’s book about its adventure.

This free event includes book readings, free educational tours at The Raptor Center, a children’s craft project, and refreshments. 

A “Raptors of Minnesota” public program is at 1:00 p.m. (additional fee).

Call 612-624-4745 for more information.

April 18, 2015 12:00 noon - 3:00 p.m.
