Join Third Place Books in welcoming Kelly Brenner with her new book, Nature Obscura: A City's Hidden Natural World.

Through explorations of Seattleā€™s rich and varied landscape, Brenner reveals the complex micro-habitats found in the middle of the city. She exposes a diverse range of strange creatures and uncovers how our alterations of the land have affected nature, through the often unseen wildlife and plants that live alongside us.
