At the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

Timothy C. Winegard’s ‘Mosquito’ explores the history of this buzzing pest, who has actually been responsible for the death of 50 percent of all humans who have ever lived.

‘Owling’ by Mark Wilson is a brilliantly illustrated guide to the world of this mysterious night bird.
