Human-Animal Relationships in the City

The recently published City Creatures: Animal Encounters in the Chicago Wilderness introduces readers to an astonishing diversity of urban wildlife with a unique mix of essays, poetry, paintings, and photographs. Join poet and UWM English professor Brenda Cárdenas, environmental historian Curt Meine, art editor Lisa Roberts, and co-editor of City Creatures Gavin Van Horn for a discussion about human-animal relationships in the city, and how art and writing can invite us into the lives of other creatures, from our backyards to the bioregion.

Thursday, March 10 | 7:00 p.m., Urban Ecology Center, 1500 E. Park Place
