The Library and Metroparks Toledo proudly present Florence Williams and The Nature Fix: Why nature makes us happier, healthier, and more creative

Is there anything better than reading outside in one of our glorious Metroparks?

The Library and Metroparks Toledo have partnered to welcome journalist, bestselling author and podcaster Florence Williams to explore that very question. 
Florence is a contributing editor at Outside Magazine and a freelance writer for the New York Times, National Geographic, The New York Review of Books, Slate, Mother Jones and numerous other publications. 
Her book The Nature Fix uncovers the science behind nature's restorative benefits and its positive effects on the brain. Copies of her book will be available for purchase and to have  signed by the author. 
This event is free and open to all.


Grab a copy of The Nature Fix from the Library or listen to the audiobook while you take in the scenery at our beautiful Metroparks, then come see the author in-person!
