Moab Festival of Science Keynote Speaker: Nicole Walker
Friday, October 5, 7:00 PM
Star Hall, 159 E Center St., Moab
Nicole Walker is the author of the forthcoming book Sustainability: A Love Story. In her talk, Walker will explore how the natural world shapes the way we tell our personal story, how metaphors taken from images in the natural world help us understand ourselves and how our work to write and revise our stories teaches us to revere and repair the natural world. Walker will speak to how the practice of nonfiction writing offers a way to re-see and revise our relationship to the planet and to ourselves.

A recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, a notable essayist in Best American 2008, 2014, 2015, and 2016 and nonfiction winner of Best of the Net in 2013 and 2014, Walker is a Professor at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona.
