Imagine On Air’s The Way We storytelling series presents The Way We Nature, featuring four non-fiction writers whose books put our relationship to the environment centre stage: Clayton Thomas-Müller, Adam Shoalts, Suzanne Simard, and Edith Widder.
Each will perform an open-mic style monologue on the theme as well as answer questions from the host, Pam Rocker. The hour-long Imagine On Air event starts at 7:00 p.m. MT (The pre-show starts at 6:50 p.m. MT.) The broadcast on Wordfest.com is free, but if you RSVP, we'll send you a reminder along with easy instructions to help you get set up, as well as our unique Digital Doggie Bag after the event with links, goodies, and references from the conversations.
We are grateful to Penguin Random House Canada for helping us connect you with these thoughtful and inspiring writers.
