Join this local Steamboat author for a book talk and celebration of her debut novel, Crow Flight, as it hits bookshelves nationwide!

The curious flight patterns of crows lead a teen computer programmer down a path of mystery and romance.

Gin trusts logic a little too much. She even designs programs to decide what to eat and how to spend her time. All that changes when she’s paired with a new transfer student, Felix, on a computer modeling assignment to explain certain anomalies in the behavior of crows. As she enters Felix’s world and digs further into the data behind crow behavior, Gin uncovers a terrible secret. And the wrong decision could equal disaster squared....

About the Author

Susan Cunningham lives in Steamboat Springs with her husband and two daughters. She enjoys science nearly as much as writing: she’s traveled to the bottom of the ocean via submarine to observe life at hydrothermal vents, camped out on an island of birds to study tern behavior, and now spends time in an office analyzing data on wool apparel. She blogs about writing and science at

This community talk is free.

“Crow Flight is a delicious novel. Gin has decided what her life should look like—and it involves logic, equations, computer models, coding, ambition, and over-achieving... This book, like Gin’s adventure, is a beauty."
Laura Pritchett, winner of the PEN USA Award in Fiction
