Current Events

Interwoven Well-Being: Me, the Environment, and Others

Presented by Valene Smith Museum of Anthropology

A talk with Anna Lenaker 

Sunday, April 18

4 – 5 pm via zoom

Virtual Work Explorations - Earth Day Edition

Local author, Anna Lenaker, will share reflections from her forthcoming memoir, Able to Be Otherwise, an intimate account of her life experiences. Anna spent many of her high school years exploring the woods of Paradise and Magalia, California on foot.  Before she studied climate change or experienced its harsh realities, the woods were her instructors and her friends.

In this talk, Anna is interested in exploring what it means to build intimacy with one’s local environment and how one’s well-being is tied up with the well-being of others and the well-being of the environment. Anna will also share the impact that the Camp Fire had on her life and what it has been like to grieve for the loss of a place she loved.
