Roger J. Lederer & Stephen DiRado

December 15, 2019

In this episode of Inquiry, we talk about the many artists who have tried to capture the beauty and variety of the world’s birds. We talk with Roger J. Lederer, professor emeritus of biological sciences at California State University, Chico. He taught courses on ornithology and ecology. We will be talking about his beautiful new book: “The Art of The Birds: The History of Ornithological Art Through Forty Artists.”

Inquiry welcomes back a long-time friend and photographer Stephen DiRado. He is a Professor of Practice in Photography at Clark University. His new book, With Dad, is a moving, powerful photo-documentation of his father’s long, painful decline with Alzheimer’s.
