The Matheson History Museum will host Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jack E. Davis on March 5 at 4 p.m. to launch his latest book, “ The Bald Eagle: The Improbable Journey of America’s Bird.”
Davis is a UF professor and won the 2018 Pulitzer in history for his book, “The Gulf, the Making of an American Sea.”.
At the Mathson, Davis will talk about his new work that chronicles five centuries of the bald eagle—a species exclusive to North America—from interactions with indigenous people to recent growth in population after years of decline.
At 4:45 p.m., the Matheson will have a public reception and outside book signing for anyone who wants to attend—no registration needed.
The Atlantic recently dove into the content of the book in an online piece. You can find it at their website.
