DOORS OPEN AT 5PM — Arrive early to purchase drinks or food so as not to disrupt the author talk.

Jenny will read some of her work and discuss her book-in-progress at this free community event. As part of our Catch & Release program this month, we are sharing a copy of Jenny’s essay titled “Thirteen Ways of Seeing Nature in L.A.,” on rethinking the stories we tell about the natural world.

JENNY PRICE received her Ph.D. in History from Yale University in 1998 with a focus on the environment, the American West, and writing history. She is a freelance writer and gives tours of the Los Angeles River on her own and as part of the Los Angeles Urban Rangers, an art-performance educational group. She has published a book called Flight Maps: Adventures with Nature in Modern America (1999) and has also written several book chapters including “Looking for Nature at the Mall: A Field Guide to the Nature Company” in Uncommon Ground: Toward Reinventing Nature (1995) and “A Natural History of the Plastic Pink Flamingo” in The Nature of Nature: New Essays from America’s Finest Writers on Nature (1994). She is also a contributing writer to LA ObservedSunset, the Los Angeles TimesGOOD, the Huffington Post, and the New York Times, among many other publications. She recently began writing a satirical environmental advice column called “Green Me Up, J.J.” for LA Observed.
