The very first book I read by today’s guest haunted me for weeks after finishing it. I couldn’t shake the reality of the near-future world that she creates, which feels as terrifying as it is tangible and close. The reality of a world without animals. I knew I had to bring her on the show somehow, and I’m so glad we were able to have today’s conversation. Charlotte McConaghy is an Australian author living in Sydney and the mind behind two international bestselling novels, Migrations and Once There Were Wolves. Charlotte’s books are sweeping, beautiful and haunting as they tackle issues related to the frayed and fragile relationship that we humans have to the natural world. Today we’ll discuss both of her latest novels, the necessity of empathy and preserving hope in the face of devastating ecological and interpersonal loss. Charlotte will be joining us for our next Earth to Humans Book Club, which you can find more information about at patreon.com/earthtohumans.
