WL #UNBOUND: Poised to Soar: Nature-Writing Sensation Helen Macdonald with Vesper Flights

November 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm PST


Tuesday, November 24 at 7:00 PM | 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

  • Environment/Nature
  • Women/Gender

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.

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