Live from Prairie Lights: Leslie Carol Roberts

7:00 PM

Location: Second floor @ Prairie Lights Books

Leslie Carol Roberts will read from her new essay collection, Here is Where I Walk: Episodes From a Life in the Forest. “A series of absorbing, funny, tragic, and deeply present ruminations…Packed with a scientist’s curiosity and an artist’s imagination, she uses her walks the way Thoreau encouraged us to treat every journey into nature: as a lesson in how to accept, relish, and even seek out change.”—John D’Agata

Leslie Carol Roberts is also the author of The Entire Earth and Sky: Views on Antarctica.  She is professor and chair of the MFA Writing Program at California College of the Arts in San Francisco, California.
