Wallace J. Nichols and Blue Mind (LITTLE BROWN)
Discussion & Book Signing
Always dreamed of living by the ocean? As Wallace J. Nichols argues in Blue Mind, it's more than just a frivolous desire. Presenting cutting-edge neuroscience alongside personal accounts from athletes, artists, and professionals, Nichols offers a compelling argument for why water is not just a valuable resource, but an invaluable part of life that can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety, and increase professional success. As the bestselling book comes out in paperback, we're excited to welcome Nichols to sign his book and discuss the astounding benefits of being in, on, under, or simply near the water we too often take for granted.
Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, called "Keeper of the Sea" by GQ magazine and "a visionary" by Outside magazine is an innovative, silo-busting, entrepreneurial scientist, movement maker, renown marine biologist, voracious Earth and idea explorer, wild water advocate, bestselling author, sought after lecturer, and fun-loving Dad. He also likes turtles (a lot). Dr. Nichols is currently a Research Associate at California Academy of Sciences and co-founder of Ocean Revolution, an international network of young ocean advocates, SEEtheWILD, a conservation travel network, Grupo Tortuguero, an international sea turtle conservation network, and #LiVBLUE!, a global campaign to reconnect us to our water planet.
