Author Heather Durham will be in conversation with local author Iris Graville regarding Heather’s new nature memoir in essays, “GOING FERAL: Field Notes on Wonder and Wanderlust.” The two authors were classmates at the Whidbey Writers Workshop MFA program, and they’ll share experiences about writing memoir, finding publishers, and the joys and terrors of being the main character in your own book.

GOING FERAL is an examination of a life of wandering in wild nature. With the scientific knowledge and observation skills of an ecologist and the existential inquiry of a philosopher, Heather immerses readers with all their senses in adventures, wanderings, and musings in wild places around the United States. Part reverential nature writing, part soul-searching memoir, GOING FERAL is the story of a human animal learning to belong to the earth.
