JOY M. KISER: AMERICA'S OTHER AUDUBON

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 10:00am

Tonight’s guest is writer and editor JOY M. KISER. When she was an Assistant Librarian at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Ms Kiser saw on display a truly beautiful book from the late nineteenth Century illustrating birds nests. Created  by one Genevieve Estelle Jones it was titled Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of Birds of Ohio. Kiser discovered that this was virtually a lost book. Although the lithographs rivaled those of Audubon, few people knew of the books existence. As Kiser researched the history of the book and of the Jones family, she uncovered an incredible story of determination, passion,  tragedy and family love.  Tune in tonight for a remarkable story of unique woman of the late 1800s and her formerly lost  book that has now been published so we can all enjoy Jones’s work. Kiser’s book which includes full color reproductions of all of the plates of Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of Ohio is titled AMERICA’S  OTHER AUDUBON.

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
