Why should you attend?

“[The Home Place is] a groundbreaking work about race and the American landscape, and a deep meditation on nature, selfhood, and the nature of home. It is thoughtful, sincere, wise, and beautiful. I want everyone to read it.”―Helen Macdonald, author of H Is for Hawk

Take this opportunity to hear distinguished writers discuss their love of nature, the impacts of climate change, the current debate on energy and environmental policy, and threats to the Southeast’s natural riches.
