The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2021

Ed Yong, Sabrina Imbler, and Julia Craven in Conversation with Jaime Green
Ed Yong, Sabrina Imbler, Julia Craven and Jaime Green

The essays in this year’s Best American Science and Nature Writing brought clarity to the complexity and bewilderment of 2020 and delivered us necessary information during a global pandemic.

From in-depth looks at the outbreak and effects of the virus, to profiles of notable figures in science and psychology, to thoughtful examinations of the crises threatening rabbits, worms, and monarch butterflies, the essays imbue a pivotal moment in history with lucidity and elegance.

Join series editor Jaime Green, guest editor Ed Yong, and contributors Julia Craven and Sabrina Imbler for a conversation on the anthology and what it means to write about science and nature today.
