Book Signing at Barnes & Noble

Friday, September 25, 2009 - 5:37pm

It’s day 3 in New York City and Jane is at it again, signing books and sharing success stories about species conservation. This time she’s at the Barnes & Noble book store in Union Square. A great crowd of supporters and book fans gave Jane a warm welcome as she signed hundreds of books and spoke to the audience. The store staff members mentioned that they get many well-known authors to the store but had never experienced as large a crowd!

Members of the press were very interested in Jane’s book and what she had to say about species survival. Here, a number of photographers snap away before Jane spoke to the crowd. (Photo by John Trybus.)

Jane holds up a Condor feather – one of her symbols of hope. The book devotes a chapter to the California Condor and how successful breeding efforts have helped to increase the population of this remarkable bird. When Jane unveiled the feather, the audience broke into a hearty round of applause! Photo by Mark Maglio

Jane, seated next to co-author Thane Maynard, greeted every last person who came to the book signing. Some people stayed for over two hours to meet Jane.
