Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA) will host New York Times best-selling author Andrea Wulf on Sunday, April 15 at 2 p.m. at the park’s visitor center. Wulf will discuss her book, The Invention of Nature, which chronicles the life of Prussian naturalist, explorer and geographer Alexander von Humboldt. The book makes the case that von Humboldt created a vision of nature as one interconnected system that would later influence scientists, activists and the public. In fact, on a visit to the United States, he visited the White House to discuss science and politics with Thomas Jefferson, who was inspired by von Humboldt’s life work.

Tickets are limited and are for sale at WashingtonCrossingPark.org/events.
