In 2003, Danielle Sosin made a temporary move to Duluth, Minnesota, to work on what would become her first novel, The Long-Shining Waters. After one season spent at the edge of Lake Superior, she knew she would never leave.

Robin Wall Kimmerer—plant ecologist, mother, professor, and author of Braiding Sweetgrass—stopped by the Milkweed offices this week. After she made the rounds saying hello to individual staff members and dropping off a bag of cookies for us, we tucked into a small, cozy office, I flipped on the recorder, and she read an excerpt from her new book.
