Author Event - Weaned Seals and Snowy Summits by Jennifer Wilhoit

The Avid Reader will be welcoming author Jennifer Wilhoit and her latest history, Weaned Seals and Snowy Summits, in-store on Wednesday, January 29th. 


More about Weaned Seals and Snowy Summits:

Wilhoit’s Weaned Seals and Snowy Summits is co-authored with Stephen B. Jones. Together, they share a collection of stories that is derived through the exploration of nature focusing on how soil and birds, trees and rivers, rain and cycles can inspire creativity and care for the land.

Though Wilhoit and Jones have taken different trails in their lives, they have the same outlook regarding the promotion of environmental stewardship through understanding and enjoyment of the ecological world. The writings of both show how a re-connection with the natural world will enhance not only the life of the reader but also the world at large.

Burt J. Kempner, co-creator of Rewilding the Human Machine forum states about the overall theme of the book ,“Given our current environmental crisis, connection (or reconnection) to the natural world is not just a crucial emotional or spiritual experience, it could well be the key to our survival.”
