Award-winning author Richard Preston will take us on a journey through the art of reporting and writing narrative nonfiction. We’ll travel through Level 4 virus labs and explore the heights of the redwood forest canopy, while Preston introduces the audience to special techniques for interviewing characters, for describing their thoughts and actions, and for explaining wonders of science and nature.
