December 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Paul Rosolie has combined firsthand experiences with the legends of local people shared in remote villages to create his novel The Girl and the Tiger (Owl Hollow Press; September 16, 2019). Rosolie threads together the glowing beads of the stories he’s collected in the jungles of South America and India to tell the story of a girl who is every bit as wild at the tiger cub she risks her life to save. It’s a timeless adventure of determination, discovery, and coming of age.

About Paul Rosolie
Paul Rosolie is a naturalist, author, and award-winning wildlife filmmaker who has specialized in the western Amazon for nearly a decade. Along with running a conservation project called Tamandua Expeditions that uses tourism to support rainforest conservation, Paul’s work has taken him to some of the last dark places on the map.
As an author Paul’s mission is to blend adventure and conservation with the aim of reaching a broader audience, and including more people in an ecological call to arms.
For the past decade Rosolie has specialized in threatened ecosystems and species in countries like Indonesia, Brazil, India, and Peru. In the Amazon, Rosolie has described new ecosystems and launched the first-ever study of anacondas in lowland rainforest. He has also spent extensive time traveling with poachers documenting the illegal trade in endangered species. Rosolie’s memoir on Amazonian wildlife and exploration, Mother of God, was hailed as “gripping” by Jane Goodall, and The Wall Street Journal applauded Rosolie’s environmental call to arms for its “rare immediacy and depth.” His conservation writing has appeared in National Geographic, The Huffington Post and The Guardian. Rosolie spoke in 2013 at the United Nations Forum on Forests while accepting an award for his Amazonian wildlife short-film An Unseen World.
