Emma Marris with Jane C. Hu
Klamath Falls author Emma Marris, author of the well-received book, Rambunctious Garden, might in other times have made the relatively short jaunt up to Seattle. As with programs such as these at present, it will be virtual, but engagingly so as she discusses her new book, Wild Souls: Freedom and Flourishing in the Non-Human World (Bloomsbury USA).
“[Wild Souls] thinks hard about what words like 'wild' and 'nature' mean. As Marris journeys from Northwest wolves to rats in New Zealand, she finds answers that are as fascinating as they are unexpected.” – Charles C. Mann.
“Where do wild animals fit in a human-dominated world? The answer, for better or worse, will be determined by humans. Emma Marris's exploration of this question is at once thoughtful, thought-provoking, and thoroughly absorbing.” – Elizabeth Kolbert.
In addition to Rambunctious Garden, Emma Marris has written award-winning pieces for many journals and magazines, including The New York Times, The Atlantic, National Geographic, and more, with work selected along the way for inclusion in Best American Science and Nature Writing.
