Join forest ecologist Suzanne Simard, poets Amy Gerstler and Kinsale Drake, composer Heather McIntosh, and The Huntington's Director of Botanical Gardens Nicole Cavender for a walking lecture and poetry reading set among three tree communities in the Huntington Botanical Gardens. In the spirit of Ursula K. LeGuin's novella The Word for the World Is Forest, this event celebrates the consciousness of the forest and the ability of trees to care for one another, listen to the world, and respond with inspired ingenuity.

This program is part of the PEN America World Voices Festival 2022.
