Fans of Tara Westover's survivalist Mormon memoir Educated will dig Michelle Dowd's Forager, which reveals the story of the writer's upbringing in an apocalyptic cult in the Angeles National Forest through vignettes on edible plants and their uses. Finding hope through flora, fauna, and survival skills, Dowd faced down doomsday in an abusive patriarchal world. She'll be joined in conversation by Lisa Wells, whose book Believers: Making a Life at the End of the World was a finalist for the 2022 PEN/E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award.
