Reading and Writing the Environment

7:30pm EST

October 1, 2020


As the places and people most affected by the climate change crisis face existential threat, freeing environmental writing from the gaze of the “Lone Enraptured Male” (London Review of Books) is crucial. Kerri Arsenault, Meehan Crist, Bathsheba Demuth, John Freeman, Emily Raboteau, and Meera Subramanian will consider the formal, structural elements environmental writers can bring to storytelling, how to handle or tell stories that support political stances, and examine the stories out there that can foster a better understanding of our environmental crisis. This event is co-sponsored by Orion magazine and the National Book Critics Circle.
