Gretchen Legler in Conversation with Amy Neswald



Trinity University Press presents an evening with GRETCHEN LEGLER, author of WOODSQUEER and ALL THE POWERFUL INVISIBLE THINGS, in conversation with AMY NEWALD, author of I KNOW YOU LOVE ME, TOO. “Woodsqueer” is sometimes used to describe the mindset of a person who has taken to the wild for an extended period of time. Gretchen Legler is no stranger to life away from the rapid-fire pace of the twenty-first century, which can often lead to a kind of stir-craziness. Woodsqueer chronicles her experiences intentionally focusing on not just making a living but making a life—in this case, an agrarian one more in tune with the earth on eighty acres in backwoods Maine.
