Susan Freinkel is an award winning author who writes and speaks about the intersection of science, culture, and the environment, and the difficult issues that arise from humans’ seemingly ceaseless effort to control the natural world.  In her acclaimed book, Plastic: A Toxic Love Story, Freinkel explores one of the most transformative inventions of the 20th century. Freinkel was awarded an Alicia Patterson Fellowship in 2005, which allowed her to conduct much of the research for American Chestnut. That book won a 2008 National Outdoor Book Award.
