WILD SPECTACLE: Seeking Wonders in a World beyond Humans

August 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Looking for adventure and self-discovery, Janisse Ray has repeatedly immersed herself in wildness. From overwintering with butterflies in Mexico to counting birds in Belize, her stories capture the joys of heart-pounding amazement, discovery of romance, and becoming a better human. Reflecting on the sights of explorers like Bartram and Sacagawea, Ray documents experiences that are rare in an age of increasingly virtual, urban life alongside disappearing habitat, declining biodiversity, and climate change. From Alaska to Central America, she questions what it means to travel as a woman, speculates on the impacts of ecotourism, and wonders if future generations will make substantive change. Wild Spectacle explores the wild earth and invites us to question its known and unknown beauties and curiosities.

Join us in welcoming Janisse and learn about her new book.
