The Songs of the Trees, David George Haskell

reading and book signing

Tuesday, May 2, 2017 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Over several years David Haskell (author of the award-winning book The Forest Unseen) visited a dozen trees, sitting with each to listen to its story. The trees are located in very different places – the Amazon rainforest, Shakerag Hollow in Sewanee, the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem, a city park in Denver, an ancient hearth in Scotland – but they all, in their own ways, tell of life’s surprising interconnections. The Songs of the Trees: Stories from Nature's Great Connectors is the story of his encounters. Free and open to all.
