Writing Wild: Women Poets, Ramblers, and Mavericks Who Shape How We See the Natural World

Join us online Wednesday, March 10 at 3:00 pm Central Time for our next ESU Happy Hour with our guest speaker, Kathryn Aalto.

In a visually-rich and entertaining presentation, New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed speaker Kathryn Aalto introduces her book, Writing Wild: Women Poets, Ramblers, and Mavericks Who Shape How We See the Natural World. Taking people behind the scenes into forays up mountains and into castle gardens, Kathryn Aalto celebrates 25 remarkable women with grit and verve whose influential writing helps deepen 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, yet they all share a bold authenticity that makes their work both distinct and universal. A great talk for people interested in natural history, nature writing, travel writing, women's history, and more.
