Jennifer Ackerman

What An Owl Knows

Jennifer has been writing about nature and science for three decades. Her latest book, What an Owl Knows: The New Science of the World’s Most Enigmatic Birds was an instant New York Times bestseller and has been described in reviews as “eloquent and engaging”, “revelatory”, a “fascinating read”, “a masterful survey”, and an “enchanting guide.”

Jennifer’s previous books include The Bird Way, a finalist for the PEN/E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award and named a Best Science Book of 2020 by National Public Radio’s “Science Friday”, and The Genius of Birds, also a New York Times bestseller, which has been published in 25 languages. That book was named one of the ten best nonfiction books of 2016 by The Wall Street Journal, a Best Book of the Year and a Nature Book of the Year by the London Sunday Times. Ackerman’s other books include Birds by the Shore, Chance in the House of Fate: A Natural History of Heredity, and Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream: A Day in the Life of Your Body.

Her articles and essays have appeared in National Geographic, The New York Times, Scientific American, and many other publications.
