At a Glance

This National Library Week, we invite you to join Corinne Heyning Laverty — author of the Los Angeles Times bestselling nonfiction book "North America’s Galapagos: The Historic Channel Islands Biological Survey." Corinne will recount the never-before-told adventures and ambitions of a group of researchers, naturalists and explorers who came together in the late 1930s to embark upon a series of unprecedented expeditions. Their mission was to piece together the human history and biological evolution of California’s eight Channel Islands. After acquainting you with the islands’ unique attributes, Corinne will introduce the explorers who set out to do what had never been done before and which has never been replicated — bringing a full contingent of scientists to all eight Channel Islands.
