Writer and Environmental Activist Jenny Price to Give Reading on Campus

January 23rd, 2013 by 

Jenny Price, writer and environmental activist, will give a reading as part of the Working Writers Series on Thursday, Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. in Rehm Library at the College of the Holy Cross. The event, sponsored by the College’s Creative Writing Program and environmental studies, is free and open to the public.

Price is a writer, Los Angeles Urban Ranger, and research scholar at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Center for the Study of Women. She writes about the environment, Los Angeles, environmentalism, gun control, the Malibu beach wars, and public space.  Author of “Flight Maps: Adventures with Nature in Modern America” (Basic Books, 1999) she’s written for numerous media outlets including GOOD, Sunset, Believer, Audubon, The New York Times, and Los Angeles Times, and writes “Green Me Up, JJ” a not-quite advice column for L.A. Observed. With the Urban Rangers art collective, she has conducted such projects as Downtown L.A. Trail System and Public Access 101: Malibu Public Beaches; has led workshops in the U.S. and abroad; and has been a resident artist at the Orange County Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art. She gives frequent tours of the concrete Los Angeles river, to emphasize its central importance to L.A.’s past, present, and future.

She has taught at UCLA, the University of Southern California, and Antioch-Los Angeles; has been a Guggenheim fellow and two-time NEH fellow; and was the Anschutz Distinguished Fellow in American Studies at Princeton University in fall 2011. She has an A.B. from Princeton, where as a biology major she studied the white-winged trumpeters of the Amazon rain forest; and a Ph.D. in history from Yale University, where she studied the plastic pink flamingos of the American grasslands.

She is currently working on a new book titled “Stop Saving the Planet! & Other Tips for 21st Century Environmentalists.”
