Science and storytelling in the Great Basin
The Great Basin and Eastern Sierra Nevada have inspired countless writers, artists, poets, musicians, and scientists who strive to understand the place we call home.
This Science Distilled event, in collaboration with Nevada Humanities, welcomes Kendra Atleework, author of the acclaimed book and 2021 Nevada Reads selection, Miracle Country: A Memoir of a Family and a Landscape, in conversation with two Desert Research Institute scientists who have dedicated their careers to the study of the Great Basin.
Join us for a special evening filled with rich conversation about the relationships between people and their places. Through science and storytelling, we’ll delve deeply into the environment around us. Learn more about how art, life, and science intersect here among the rugged ridgelines and open skies of our wondrous region.
