Walkley Award–winning author Delia Falconer’s new book, Signs and Wonders, is a pioneering examination of how global warming is changing not only our climate but our culture. Beautifully observed, brilliantly argued and deeply felt, these essays show that our emotions, our art and our relationships with the generations around us – all the delicate networks that make us who we are – have already been transformed. Hear Delia discuss Signs and Wonders and how it feels to be a reader, a writer, a lover of nature and a mother of small children in an era of profound ecological change.
