A Conversation with E. O. Wilson and Robert Hass

Nature and Poetry

The American Museum of Natural History, in collaboration with Poets House, presents Nature and Poetry: A Conversation with E.O. Wilson and Robert Hass on Thursday, December 6, at 7:30 pm.

Former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Hass, author of What Light Can Do: Essays on Art, Imagination, and the Natural World, engages in conversation with internationally acclaimed entomologist and two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner E.O. Wilson, author of The Social Conquest of Earth. Sharing the stage for the third time in the course of their careers, these two extraordinary thinkers and writers discuss how art and science mix in their respective fields to raise awareness of the world around us. Hass and Wilson examine how the close observation of nature, which is central to both poetry and science, can inspire the conservationist in all of us.
