In June, we will be discussing Nature is Everywhere- we just need to learn to see it, a Ted Talk by Emma Marris. This thought-provoking presentation has served as an important source of inspiration for Editing Nature; we hope you will also find it relevant to your work and interests! 

We love Emma's work and are watching this Ted Talk in anticipation of her forthcoming book, Wild Souls, available June 29th. We encourage you to to join us in reading Wild Souls over the summer. It will be discussed at our first meeting of the Fall!
