LITERATURE WEEKEND IN THE CITY
Rebecca Giggs writes about science with the lyricism of a poet. She is gifted with the capacity to describe the terror of impending environmental disaster in ways that will break your heart.
Fathoms: The World in the Whale is not just a book about whales and the oceans, it is a book about humanity and our capacity to hurt even the things we claim to love. Rebecca’s work on jellyfish swarms, sea turtles and heatwaves has appeared in Griffith Review, The Atlantic, Granta and The New York Times Magazine.
Join one of the country’s most well-respected nature and science writers in a special visual presentation that takes us to the depths of the sea.
