2 p.m. Avalon Theatre, Easton
Free, Registration Required

​Biologist and nature writer David George Haskell has spent his career reminding us to pay closer attention to nature. In his latest book, Sounds Wild and Broken, which was nominated for a 2022 Pulitzer Prize in general nonfiction, Haskell turns his considerable perceptive powers to “Earth’s fraying soundtrack”—the planet’s orchestral richness, which is being increasingly blocked out by human noise. Haskell will deliver a book talk and play some recordings of nature’s most wondrous sounds in the Avalon Theatre. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. The first 35 arrivals will receive a free copy of the book.

This program is presented in partnership with Shore Lit and the Avalon Foundation.
