Braiding Sweetgrass: Exploring the Intersection of Environmental Science and Creative Writing

With Alison Hawthorne Deming and Robin Kimmerer

Saturday, October 19, 2013 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Robin Kimmerer and Alison Hawthorne Deming are explorers of the interface between environmental sciences and creative expression. Join us for reading and conversation exploring what good things can happen when analytical and imaginative traditions work in tandem.

The evening will be a celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Long-Term Ecological Reflections program, and will feature Robin Kimmerer’s just-released new book, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants, an inspired weaving of indigenous knowledge, plant science, and personal narrative.

Since its inception in 2003, Long-Term Ecological Reflections has hosted more than 40 writers-in-residence at the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest, and sponsored field symposia on challenging topics such as “The Meaning of Watershed Health” and “New Metaphors for Restoration.”  Writings produced by our writers-in-residence have appeared in prominent national publications such as The Atlantic, Orion, and OnEarth
