Start: 7:00 pm
As the days grow shorter and nights longer, head in to winter with new books that explore and celebrate the natural wonders of the world! Join Village Books and North Cascades Institute in welcoming Institute instructors to Bellingham to share their latest works in the winter session of our Nature of Writing Series. You'll learn more about our amazing planet through the inspiring, informed voices of America's most gifted interpreters of the natural world. Robert Michael Pyle's "Tangled Bank" column appeared in fifty-two consecutive issues of Orion and Orion Afield magazines over eleven years. In each concise piece, Pyle refutes "the idea that the world is a boring place," sharing his meticulous observations of the fascinating details of the living earth. Robert Michael Pyle dwells with his wife, Thea, a botanist and weaver, in an old Swedish farmstead in southwest Washington. His sixteen books include the John Burroughs Medal-winning Wintergreen, The Thunder Tree, Sky Time in Gray's River, and Mariposa Road. A Guggenheim Fellow and founder of the Zerces Society, he is often associated with butterflies, slugs, and Bigfoot. Read about 5 of his favorite nature books at the Village Books Blog.
