Janine Burke in conversation with Inga Simpson

Award-winning author and art historian Janine Burke meanders along forest trails within art, myth, history and present day in in the enchanting and illuminating My Forests: Travels with Trees.

Travel the ancient Incense Road with the Biblical Magi. Enjoy the dancing olive groves of Tuscany and read of 'sleeping' Silver Birches. Witness the spectacular tree houses of the Korowai of West Papua. Visit tree sitter Miranda Gibson, whose 449-day protest against clearfelling in Tasmania's Tyenna Valley led to a World Heritage listing. 

My Forests: Travels with Trees presents the role of trees in contemporary life in a world where most people don't live in the wild, and their acquaintance with nature comes from many sources.

Come travel with Janine and fellow tree-lover Inga Simpson for a special conversation as they explore forests, art and writing, cities and parks, deserts and gardens, rainforests and wetlands, exploring the connections between trees and civilisations, past and present.
