The Bay Area Book Festival's #UNBOUND virtual series will be featuring biologist and visionary Merlin Sheldrake about his new book, Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our Futures, in a LIVE conversation with local bestselling writer and journalist Michael Pollan (How to Change Your Mind, The Omnivore's Dilemma), co-hosted by Green Apple Books.
Merlin Sheldrake's book has received national accolades. As famed naturalist Robert MacFarlane attested in his New Yorker article, “[Merlin] was given a magical name and he grew into a magical person." The scope of Sheldrake's work and vision on how fungi may save humanity from itself addresses the challenges of our times when a systemic paradigm shift in our consciousness, a new way of seeing, and a dose of magic may be just what we need right now.
In a LIVE conversation, Merlin Sheldrake and Michael Pollan will reveal the wonder and hope of the "The Wood Wide Web," its life-affirming message, the importance of community building, and what we can learn from these unsung-yet-transformational super-organisms.
