Event description

Description

Join bestselling author Florence Williams at a Palmetto Conservation event in April to discuss her latest book, The Nature Fix, and find out why spending time in the great outdoors leaves one energized.

In The Nature Fix, subtitled “Why nature makes us happier, healthier, and more creative,” Williams explores state-of-the-art research from three continents to explain the enormous benefits on body, mind and soul of spending time in nature. Presumably, fur-footed canine friends also benefit, for dogs love a good romp in the woods.

Palmetto Conservation Foundation (PCF), which is building the public Palmetto Trail across South Carolina, is bringing the author to Columbia for a special presentation and book signing. Naturalist Rudy Mancke, host of NatureScene and NatureNotes on public television and radio, will serve as moderator. An expert panel and audience questions will round out the lively commentary. Early-bird tickets are $20 for PCF members and $30 for nonmembers until April 1. Prices increase by $5 each after Fool’s Day. The event will take place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 17, at 701 Whaley in Columbia. Drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be served. SCE&G, a longtime supporter of the Palmetto Trail, is helping sponsor the event.

Williams is a contributing editor at Outside Magazine and a freelance writer for the New York Times, New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, The New York Review of Books, Slate, Mother Jones, and numerous other publications.

The Nature Fix book is available for purchase at the PCF office, 722 King St., Columbia. Prices are $18 for PCF members and $20 for nonmembers. For shipping, please contact the PCF office at (803) 771-0870. A $5 shipping charge will apply.

Florence Williams will be available to sign copies of the book
