About the Event

On  Tuesday, March 1st at noon, please join us as we welcome acclaimed  author Janisse Ray for a virtual presentation about her latest book,  "Wild Spectacle: Seeking Wonder in a World Beyond Humans." Zoom link to  follow.

From  overwintering with monarch butterflies in Mexico to counting birds in  Belize, the stories in Wild Spectacle capture Ray's luckiest  moments—ones of heart-pounding amazement, the 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.

Janisse  Ray is an American writer whose favorite subject is the borderland of  nature and culture. Ray has won an American Book Award, Pushcart Prize,  Southern Bookseller  Awards, Southern Environmental Law Center Writing  Awards, Nautilus  Award, an Eisenberg Award, among others. She has been  inducted into the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame. Her first book, Ecology  of a Cracker Childhood, was a New York Times Notable Book. Her eighth,  Wild Spectacle, was released in October 2021. Free and open to the public.
