To celebrate publication of Tools for Surviving a Storm, we discuss nature, writing and women, and chat with author of the collection Nadia Henderson.

Listen to Ep 13 of Her Own Words podcast

This episode, we kick off with the words of Alice Walker:

In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.

–Alice Walker
