Named a "Best Essay Collection of the Decade" by Literary Hub
Robin Wall Kimmerer is a mother, scientist, decorated professor, and enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. She is the author of the New York Times bestselling collection of essays Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants as well as Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses. Kimmerer is a 2022 MacArthur Fellow. She lives in Syracuse, New York, where she is a SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor of Environmental Biology, and the founder and director of the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment.
Robin Wall Kimmerer is one of my favorite authors for discussing the wonders of our natural world, the ways it connects us all, and how we can be better stewards for the future. She comes at her writing from a complex perspective; rooted both in her studies as a professor of environmental biology, and in her knowledge as an Indigenous woman of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. Her work definitely helps me feel more connected and purposeful at any time, and would certainly be a great read for now!
