Julia Corbett

Monday, October 8th, 6pm

Author Julia Corbett shares her new book, Out of the Woods: Seeing Nature in the Everyday. In this fresh and introspective collection of essays, Corbett examines nature in our lives with all of its ironies and contradictions by seamlessly integrating personal narratives with morsels of highly digestible science and research. Each story delves into an overlooked aspect of our relationship with nature-insects, garbage, backyards, noise, open doors, animals, and language-and how we cover our tracks. The phrase "out of the woods" guides us through layers of meaning to a contemplation of grief, remembrance, and resilience.
