Event description
Author Michael Pollan, Ethnobotanist Mark Plotkin and author Randy Fertel in a magical evening exploring encounters with unscripted reality

About this Event

Michael Pollan, the celebrated environmental journalist, essayist, and New York Times best-selling author of How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence, joins the New Orleans-born ethnobotanist Mark Plotkin, President of the Amazon Conservation Team and author of Tales of a Shaman's Apprentice: An Ethnobotanist Searches for New Medicines in the Rain Forest, for a magical evening exploring encounters with unscripted reality.

Moderated by Randy Fertel, author of A Taste for Chaos: The Art of Literary Improvisation. The premise: who would think to couple them, but both psychedelics and improv promise unmediated experience, “opening a crack,” as Pollan writes, “in materialist rationality.”
