July 25, 2008: William Stolzenburg
Presented as part of the B&ECPL’s Meet The Author Lunchtime Library Series in conjunction with WBFO-FM, this edition features William Stolzenburg, author of the book, Where the Wild Things Were: Life, Death, and Ecological Wreckage in a Land of Vanishing Predators. In this impassioned debut, wildlife journalist Stolzenburg examines predation's crucial role in the preservation of ecological diversity, painting nightmarish pictures of what happens when top carnivores are exterminated from ecosystems. In dazzling descriptions, Stolzenburg demonstrates how the delicate balance between predator and prey is so essential, and his book, rich in dramatic accounts of life and death in the wild, is powerful and compelling.

175 Years of Libraries in Buffalo & Erie County
Over its long and distinguished history of supporting, educating and entertaining the citizens of our community, the Library has remained a resilient anchor throughout explosive growth, wars, industrial decline, and economic uncertainty. Anne Conable of the Library’s Development & Communications Department discusses the stories behind the Library as Buffalo’s first cultural organization and “mother of culturals,” a tradition of entrepreneurial innovation, devoted staff and generous donors, and several of the Library’s “heroes.”
