Poised to Soar: Nature-Writing Sensation Helen Macdonald

October 6, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

| $20 – $35
Helen Macdonald is one of the world’s foremost nature and culture writers

Helen Macdonald’s bestselling memoir H is For Hawk, a transcendent meditation on grief, relationships, and falconry, established her as one of the world’s foremost nature and culture writers. She’s setting our imaginations soaring again with Vesper Flights, a collection of her best-loved essays, illuminating everything from mushroom-hunting to the poignant particulars of birds’ nests. As Helen wrote, “animals don’t exist in order to teach us things,” but her live conversation with American Book Award-winning poet Camille T. Dungy will show us how much we can learn by letting nature keep its secrets.

Each ticket purchase includes a copy of Vesper Flights (note: we can only ship within the United States), event admission for the live event, and a link to the recorded conversation for viewing after October 6th.

Due to evacuation orders in West Marin, book shipments for this event have been delayed. We will get your books to you as quickly and safely as we can. Thank you for your patience.

In association with the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin (EAC) and the Golden Gate Audubon Society
