Wild animals are all around us—populating our cities, roaming our imaginations. Join ecologist Liam Heneghan, author of Beasts at Bedtime: Revealing the Environmental Wisdom in Children’s Literature, and naturalist Gavin Van Horn, author of The Way of Coyote: Shared Journeys in the Urban Wilds, for a presentation and discussion about how animals can help us rethink and re-story our urban areas.
