Shankar Vedantam, host of NPR’s Hidden Brain, as he interviews Florence Williams, prize-winning author of The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative, about the restorative power of nature.
For centuries, poets and philosophers extolled the benefits of a walk in the woods: Beethoven drew inspiration from rocks and trees, and Nikola Tesla conceived the electric motor while visiting a park. Intrigued by our storied renewal in the natural world, Williams sets out to uncover the best science behind nature’s positive effects on the brain. As our modern lives shift dramatically indoors, Williams will explain how the natural world can improve health, promote reflection and innovation, and ultimately strengthen our relationships. From forest trails in Korea, to islands in Finland, to groves of eucalyptus in California, Williams’ keen observations-—and the answers they yield—are more urgent now than ever. Join us for a book signing by Williams and Vedantam following the lecture.
