How do environmental storytellers address income disparity, toxic ecologies, nationalism turning violent, climate crisis, or xenophobia? How do they put information into context, turn data into plot, or science into metaphor? How do storytellers marry the environmental with the social, or tether the precision of scholarship with literary prose, or look to the past to imagine our future? The Environmental Storytelling Studio co-founders Kerri Arsenault and Bathsheba Demuth will be in conversation with authors Morgan Talty, Pitchaya Sudbanthad, and Leigh Newman, who contend with such issues in new and imaginative ways.
