Celebrating Old Growth: A conversation with Robin Wall Kimmerer, Robert Macfarlane, and David Haskell
Saturday, September 18, 1:00-2:15pm EDT
Orion Magazine recently released Old Growth, an anthology of essays and poems about the lives of trees. To celebrate the release of the book, Robin Wall Kimmerer will hold a public discussion with Robert Macfarlane and David Haskell. These authors bring a unique perspective on the legacy of trees in deep time, which they explore in their recent books Braiding Sweetgrass, Underland, and The Song of Trees respectively. Together, they will discuss the idea of the personhood of trees, root communities, and the ways in which humans mighty foster the growth of our canopy.
