Dr. David Haskell Presentation at UT Arboretum Conference Center on April 24
On Tuesday, April 24, 7:00 p.m., at the UT Arboretum Conference Center, Strata-G will sponsor a presentation by Dr. David Haskell. Dr. Haskell is the 2018 John Burroughs Award-winning author of the book, The Songs of Trees. A Professor of Biology at the University of the South, he has been called “that rare kind of scientist Rachel Carson was when she pioneered a new cultural aesthetic of poetic prose about science.” A recent review in The Times Literary Supplement stated, “The Songs of Trees has the diverse busyness of a thriving woodland. It is hard to think of a recent scientifically-inflected book on nature that is as fluent, compelling, and intoxicatingly rich.” The presentation is free and open to the public.
