How did you spend your time during the spring of 2020 as Covid raged? Inquiry’s guest tonight is JEREMY MYNOTT. He is a writer, editor, and Emeritus Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge, Britain. Under strict lockdown during that time, Mynott, Michael McCarthy, and Peter Marren, all noted natural history writers, decided to track the coming of spring by talking short walks from their home. Their observations of nature coupled with news of the deadly progress of the virus makes THE CONSOLATION OF NATURE: SPRING IN THE TIME OF THE CORONAVIRUS a poignant, unique, and wonderful book.
