We usually think of cities as the domain of humans—but we are just one of thousands of species that call the urban landscape home. The recently published City Creatures: Animal Encounters in the Chicago Wilderness introduces readers to an astonishing diversity of urban wildlife with a unique and accessible mix of essays, poetry, paintings, and photographs.

 

Join poet Brenda Cárdenas, environmental historian Curt Meine, art editor Lisa Roberts, and Gavin Van Horn, co-editor of City Creatures, for a discussion about human-animal relationships in the city, and how art and writing can invite us into the lives of other creatures, from our backyards to the bioregion.
