October events include the dedication of “Guy’s Marsh” in honor of Guy Baldassarre

The JHU Press October events calendar features the launch of the Healthy Living Series at Baltimore’s Ivy Bookshop, a program with the Johns Hopkins Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences for our new biography of pioneering psychiatrist Adolf Meyer, and book events in Montreal and Cincinnati.  A poignant and memorable event will be the dedication on Saturday, October 11, of a portion of the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge in honor of the late Guy Baldassarre, whose  revised edition of the waterfowl classic Ducks, Geese, and Swans of North America was recently published by JHU Press.  We extend our best wishes to Guy’s family, friends, and colleagues. As always, we invite you to help spread the word about this month’s calendar.
