Ecological Memory book talk with author Caroline Ailanthus via Zoom

6:30pm - 7:30pm

Register today!

The front-cover of a book. The title,

Observe Earth Day (a day early) with an author talk presented Caroline Ailanthus discussing her book Ecological Memory via Zoom.

Part scientific detective story, part post-apocalyptic travelogue, Ecological Memory is a work of ecological fiction. Although she wrote the book well before COVID-19 existed, it is set twenty years after a catastrophic pandemic and deals with recovery and resilience on personal, societal, and ecological levels. That makes it unexpectedly timely, perhaps a source of perspective and hope.  Her tale is likely to appeal to anyone who enjoyed Flight Behavior, by Barbara Kingsolver or Overstory, by Richard Powers. 

In her talk, she will briefly describe the book’s plot, main characters, and other relevant points, then read several excerpts and use them as starting points to discuss two themes: creating a fictional pandemic vs. living in a real one and looking to the science of ecology as a source of perspective and hope in the face of loss.  She will end with a question-and-answer period, and may read additional excerpts as part of the discussion.

Caroline Ailanthus is primarily a science writer; even her fiction blends science and story. She is also the author of the Climate in Emergency blog. Ecological Memory is her second published novel. She grew up in Delaware and attended various small, odd schools, mostly in New England, earning BA in Environmental Leadership and an MS in Environmental Studies. She lives in Maryland with her husband and assorted animals.

Registration is required to receive the Zoom link via e-mail.
