Our summer author series. Enjoy a lecture and q & a session with author Kathryn Aalto about her new book Writing Wild, available for purchase through our online shop. Who are the pioneering and imaginative women who dared  to take simple walks without the chaperone of men? To pick up a pen and write under their own names? To record their protests, poetry and prose? To change history? In Writing Wild, Kathryn Aalto lyrically profiles 25 women, both historical and current, whose influential nature writing has deepened our connection to and understanding of the natural world. These inspiring wordsmiths are scholars, spiritual seekers, conservationists, scientists, novelists, and explorers. They defy easy categorization but share a bold authenticity that makes their work distinct and universal. Part travel essay, literary biography, and cultural history, Writing Wild ventures into the landscapes and lives of extraordinary writers and encourages a new generation of women to pick up their pens, head outdoors, and start writing wild. This program is presented in collaboration with Tower Hill Botanic Garden and Timber Press.
