One of the most fundamental human commonalities is a need for, and response to, story. Stories connect us – to one another and to place. As the foundation of ecology, natural history – historia naturalis, literally, the story of nature – is rich with stories that can captivate a wide variety of audiences with ecological themes.
In conjunction with the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America, the ESA Natural History Section, in collaboration with the Natural History Institute and The King’s English Bookshop, presents readings and discussion with authors Julia Corbett, Thomas L. Fleischner, Susan M. Gaines, Cylita Guy, J. Drew Lanham, Nalini Nadkarni, Richard Nevle, and Stephen Trimble.
