~Co-presented with Point Reyes Books~
Robert Macfarlane is the celebrated author of books about the intersection between the human and natural world. In Underland, he delivers his newest masterwork: an epic exploration of Earth's vast subterranean landscape in myth, literature, memory, and the land itself. Delving into what is known as "deep time," Robert takes us on an exhilarating journey to Arctic sea caves, Bronze Age burial chambers, the catacombs of Paris, the underground fungal networks through which trees communicate, and a deep-sunk "hiding place" designed to store nuclear waste for 100,000 years to come. Underland uncovers our complex, crucial relationship with the worlds beneath our feet. Robert will be joined in conversation with writer, historian and activist Rebecca Solnit.
