In her new collection Trace: Memory, History, Race and the American Landscape, author Lauret Savoy looks at both the natural world and the cultural histories that impact American impressions of it. A geologist who teaches environmental studies at Mount Holyoke, Savoy composed the book’s eight essays about the intersection between cultural and natural landscapes. “Savoy raises more questions than she answers,” according to the Boston Globe, “but they are the kind of questions that provoke discussion. This is not a book to be read quickly.” Savoy will speak as part of the Athenaeum’s spring 2016 salon series.
