“My Life As a Turkey” Film Showing on November 20


You can watch a trailer here.

Based on a true story, My Life as a Turkey chronicles naturalist Joe Hutto’s remarkable experience of raising a group of sixteen Wild Turkey hatchlings to adulthood. This charming film – which won an Emmy for Outstanding Nature Programming – explores the unique connection between Hutto and his brood with humor and thoughtfulness, providing a rare glimpse into how these curious, intelligent birds see the world. Following the film, Eric Masterson – one of the Harris Center’s resident bird experts and author of Birdwatching in New Hampshire – will be on hand to “talk turkey” in an informal Q&A session.

Thursday, November 20 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Putnam Theater at Keene State College. Free and open to all.  For more information, please contact Brett Amy Thelen at thelen@harriscenter.org. Cosponsored by the Harris Center, the Monadnock Conservancy, and the Keene State College Film Society.
