Charlotte McConaghy's instant bestseller Migrations, researcher Franny Stone arrives in Greenland with the singular purpose of following the last Arctic terns in the world on what might be their final migration to Antarctica. When Franny’s history begins to unspool - a passionate love affair, an absent family, a devastating crime - it becomes clear that she is chasing more than just the birds. An ode to a disappearing world, Migrations is a heartbreaking page-turner about the possibility of hope against all odds.  

McConaghy’s Once There Were Wolves (set for release on August 3) is a pulse-pounding novel about a biologist charged with reintroducing 14 wolves to the Scottish Highlands in order to rewild the landscape and bring the forest back to life. Fueled by her love of nature and stories of fierce women, McConaghy crafts a compelling lead character in Inti Flynn, who grapples with the harm she has witnessed humans inflict on both the wild and on each other. Inti hopes to heal not only the dying landscape, but her sister, too, who suffers from the impact of a tragic event that drove them both away from their home in Alaska.

This event will include a discussion of both books, as well as clips from an interview with Berlin-based artist Julian Charrière, whose current exhibition at the DMA bridges the realms of environmental science and cultural history with melancholic portraits of nature in the human era.

A recording of this virtual event will be available through August 18.
