From the wonderful Point Reyes Books, an upcoming virtual release party that you won't want to miss! ---- Register on Eventbrite

Point Reyes Books: "We're delighted to host Merlin to celebrate the release of Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our Futures. (That's his copy of the book above, being devoured by Pleurotus, or oyster mushrooms.)

"You may remember fungal biologist Merlin Sheldrake from Robert Macfarlane's Underland, where Rob describes the pair's jaunt through Epping Wood to discover the secrets of the "wood wide web." (You can read that piece in the New Yorker, as well as a glowing review of Merlin's book published in the magazine just last week.)

"Merlin will be joined by Helen Macdonald, author of the bestselling memoir, H is for Hawk, for this special afternoon event available streaming on Zoom and Facebook Live.

"This is a free event, though we encourage you to pay what you can to support the bookstore during this time, or to consider ordering the book from our website."

About Entangled Life

“Dazzling, vibrant, vision-changing . . . a remarkable work by a remarkable writer, which succeeds in springing life into strangeness again.”—Robert Macfarlane, author of Underland
