Journalist and author Richard Louv will be the guest of Green Elk Rapids for a presentation in Elk Rapids on Wednesday, May 4, 6:30 p.m., at Peterman Auditorium, and in Traverse City on Thursday, May 5, 6:30 p.m., at the Hagerty Center.
Louv is the author of eight books about the connections between family, nature and community.
His landmark book Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder has been translated into 15 languages and published in 17 countries, stimulating an international conversation about the relationships between children and nature. His book The Nature Principle: Reconnecting with Life in a Virtual Age offers a new vision of the future in which our lives are as immersed in nature as they are in technology.
Serving as a companion handbook to the two prior books, Vitamin N: The Essential Guide to a Nature-Rich Life will be published in April 2016.
