Hope Jahren

[tab title=”Details”]

What’s it like being a woman in the field of science? Award-winning scientist Hope Jahren’s Lab Girl is an examination of this question, but it’s also so much more. In conversation with The Stranger‘s Sydney Brownstone, she’ll share anecdotes from her decades-long career and the thrill of pursuing your dreams. She’ll also share highlights from her field research on the trees, flowers, and seeds of the Midwest and, most recently, Hawaii’s lush flora and fauna. From explaining the way a seed first starts to sprout roots and how willow trees clone themselves, she’ll peel back the layers of the natural beauty others might take for granted. She’ll also make a case for pursuing a career in science, despite its more challenging aspects.
