Organiser's description (via 5x15):

Due to phenomenal demand, 5x15 is delighted to announce an additional London event with leading author and ecologist Robin Wall Kimmerer.

Robin Wall Kimmerer's internationally bestselling books, Braiding Sweetgrass and Gathering Moss, not only teach us about the biology of different organisms, but show us other ways of living in the world. It is through celebrating our reciprocal relationship with nature that we can awaken our ecological consciousness, and better protect our planet's gifts.

Don't miss the chance to hear this extraordinary writer share her unique perspectives on plants, ecology and the natural world. Robin will be in conversation with Alice Vincent author of Rootbound.

Robin Wall Kimmerer is a mother, scientist, decorated professor and enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. She lives in Syracuse, New York, where she is a Professor of Environmental Biology and the founder and director of the Centre for Native Peoples and the Environment. Her current work spans traditional ecological knowledge, moss ecology, outreach to tribal communities and creative writing.

Alice Vincent is a writer. Her books include Why Women Grow, Stories of Soil, Sisterhood and Survival and Rootbound, Rewilding a Life. A columnist for The Guardian and The New Statesman, Alice writes for Vogue, The Financial Times and The Times. She is the host of the Why Women Grow and In Haste podcasts and creator of her bi-weekly newsletter, savour.
