Join Jamaican poet Dr. Jason Allen-Paisant for a conversation about the transformative power of spending time among trees. From his home in Leeds, England, Dr. Allen-Paisant will talk about the inspiration for the poems in his new book, Thinking with Trees, which explores concepts of freedom, leisure, and race through the human experience of walking in nature.
After a reading from the book, Dr. Allen-Paisant will sit down with Dr. Andrew Hipp, senior scientist at The Morton Arboretum, for a conversation about giving shape to our relationship to nature through the language of poetry, and the ways in which nature can change our perspectives and lived experiences.
Thinking with Trees is available at The Arboretum Store or at online retailers.
