What Comes Naturally: The Science and Soul of Nature Writing

July 14, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


The natural world is full of mysteries, ones that writers and artists are uniquely equipped to unlock. In this virtual conversation, four authors meet at a literary crossroads between hard science, lyrical prose, and visual sumptuousness: Naturalist, writer and illustrator Obi Kaufmann turns his scientific acumen and artist’s palette on California’s most contested natural resource, water; while Josie Iselin wades into the deep end with an in-depth look at the magic of seaweed. John Muir Laws and Emilie Lygren take us into the revelatory practice of nature journaling.

Together, they’ll explore the intersection of science, art, and literature, and how nature writing, as a literary genre, can inform and deepen the impact of scientific research.
