The Everglades: the River of Grass, has fascinated environmentalists, enchanted photographers and challenged engineers and farmers for decades. 90.7’s Amy Green is diving into the Glades in a book she’s working on about Everglades champions George and Mary Barley.

North Florida novelist Jeff Vandermeer is inspired by the environment too, but his books offer a dystopian vision of the future populated by terrifying creatures. This Saturday, Green and Vandermeer will speak at a Functionally Literate event in Orlando. 

They join Intersection to talk about how environmental concerns inform their writing.
