Eleven Ways of Smelling a Tree

with David G. Haskell, feat. musical guest Katherine Lehman

May 6, 2020

Writer David Haskell will discuss and read from his sensory essay “Eleven Ways of Smelling a Tree,” inviting us on a journey to visit—and smell—trees from around the world: blooming basswood flowers along the streets of New York City, the fallen limb of a Nothofagus beech in Queensland, Australia, a giant ginkgo in Tennessee. Violinist Katherine Lehman, Executive Director of the Boulder Philharmonic, will provide musical accompaniment to David’s reading. Moderated by Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, this live conversation will include a moderated Q&A with the audience.
