Outside chances: The environment is getting a healthy respite right now thanks to less human activity around the globe. Is it possible to get back out there with intention and a newfound respect? Two area authors consider the role of nature in our lives during Leah ‘n’ Lulu’s Virtual Picnic, an immersion in “environmental writing in your own backyard.” Poet Leah Naomi Green (The More Extravagant Feast) and author Lulu Miller (Why Fish Don’t Exist: A Story of Loss, Love, and the Hidden Order of Life) will read and discuss their work, then offer writing prompts to the audience. Outdoor seating is recommended.

Thursday, May 28. Free, noon. Zoom registration required. virginiahumanities.org.
