Writer Margaret Renkl doesn’t have to travel far to appreciate nature. She basks in the nearby parks of her hometown Nashville to draw inspiration for her essays on the environment. Through a regular column in the New York Times, Renkl tackles climate change, racial justice and environmental issues from her “blue dot” hometown in a red state.
