Trinity University Press presents an evening with Janisse Ray, bestselling author of Ecology of a Cracker Childhood and Wild Spectacle: Seeking Wonders in a World beyond Humans, in conversation with Kathryn Aalto, author of Writing Wild. Ray has repeatedly set out to immerse herself in wildness, to be wild, and to learn what wildness can teach us. From overwintering with monarch butterflies in Mexico to counting birds in Belize, the stories in Wild Spectacle capture her luckiest moments—ones of heart-pounding amazement, discovery of romance, and moving toward living more wisely. In Ray’s worst moments she crosses boundaries to encounter danger and embrace sadness. Wild Spectacle explores our first home, the wild earth, and invites us to question its known and unknown beauties and curiosities. More on the book at tupress.org.
