When Rebecca Giggs encountered a humpback whale stranded on her local beach, she began to wonder how the lives of whales might shed light on the condition of our seas—and of our humanity. Fathoms: the world in the whale is a work of profound insight and wonder that blends social, cultural and natural history, philosophy, and ecological science to explore what these awe-inspiring creatures reveal about our collective futures.

In this digital event, Giggs joins Michaela McGuire to discuss what it means to write about nature in a time of technological change and ecological crisis. Join the Q&A for a chance to put your questions about the book directly to the author.
