Event Description

Join Adrienne Ross Scanlan at the Bellevue Barnes and Noble at 2:00pm, for a reading from her new book, 'Turning Homeward: Restoring Hope and Nature in the Urban Wild.'

Turning Homeward is the journey of a newcomer to the Pacific Northwest who learns that home isn’t simply where you live, but where you create belonging.

Set in Washington's urban, suburban, and other "altered" landscapes, Adrienne Ross Scanlan’s Turning Homeward (Mountaineers Books) creates an accessible narrative of the complicated joys of rolling up one's sleeves and reaching out to help repair our beautiful, broken world. Scanlan weaves her personal story with the natural history of Puget Sound and the complex issues around urban renewal and river restoration. Turning Homeward speaks to a simple truth spreading through our society: the nature we cherish lives alongside us, and by restoring it, we heal both home and heart.
