Event description
“Meet The Real James Bond” - 6:00pm - October 29th, 2021

About this event

In 1952, Ian Fleming stole the name of a famous ornithologist and explorer named James Bond (1900-1989), the author of the trail-blazing Birds of the West Indies. This colorfully illustrated talk will focus on Bond, the Fleming connection, and some of the birds, bird eggs (including Harpy Eagle eggs from the WFVZ) and other species that Bond collected. There’ll be some 007 moments as well, in keeping with the new James Bond movie, No Time to Die.

Please join us for an evening of history and intrigue with Jim Wright, the author of The Real James Bond, the acclaimed biography about the birdman who fell prey to the world’s most famous case of identity theft.

The Wall Street Journal called it “slim and elegant -- like Bond himself."
