WL #UNBOUND: Poised to Soar: Nature-Writing Sensation Helen Macdonald with Vesper FlightsTuesday, November 24 | 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
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.
