Ecological communities don’t stop where the buildings begin.

Join authors Matt Stansberry and Gavin Van Horn for a co-presentation at CityLit Books.

The essays in Matt Stansberry’s Rust Belt Arcana map the divinatory associations of Tarot cards to the wildlife of the Rust Belt. These are stories of abundance and loss, the persistent remnant wilderness of the Industrial Midwest.

Gavin Van Horn’s The Way of Coyote: Shared Journeys in the Urban Wilds is the story of a naturalist learning to adapt to life in the big city, a hopeful exploration of the phenomenon of urban rewilding that is unfolding in cities around the world, and a lyrical adventure that reveals how wildlife can awaken us to a shared sense of place and fate.
