Gather: Robin Wall Kimmerer


Join mother, scientist, decorated professor, and author, Robin Wall Kimmerer for a conversation on her collection of essays, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teaching of Plants. As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plans and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowledge together to take us on “a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise” (Elizabeth Gilbert). Braiding Sweetgrass was named a New York Times Best Seller, a Washington Post Best Seller, a Los Angeles Times Best Seller, a “Best Essay Collection of the Decade” by Literary Hub, A Book Riot “Favorite Summer Read of 2020,” and a Food Tank Fall 2020 Reading Recommendation. $35 ($30 for Members) $56.73 with Book ($51.73 for Members), find ticket information and more here.
