Wilding: Book Reading and Discussion with Author Isabella Tree

Join us for a reading and discussion with author and journalist Isabella Tree, author of Wilding: Returning Nature to Our Farm (New York Review of Books, 2019). When conventional methods of farming failed them, Isabella Tree and Charlie Burrell tried a radical approach: they restored their farm's 3,500 acres to the wild. At a time of looming environmental disaster, Wilding is an inspiring story of a farm, couple, and community transformed. Tree’s book brings together science, natural history, a fair bit of drama, and—ultimately—hope. The reading will be followed by Q&A with Peder Anker.

Isabella Tree is an award-winning travel writer who has authored five books including The Living Goddess, The Bird Man, and Islands In The Clouds.
