Inquiry welcomes naturalist, eco-philosopher, speaker and writer LYANDA LYNN HAUPT. She has written a wonderful new book about those wild creatures that we now find in our urban environments. These are animals like coyotes, raccoons, possums and even moles. We are deeply conflicted about these wild creatures on our home turf. As Lyanda writes: “we hope that they thrive. We wish they would leave.” He new book is titled THE URBAN BESTIARY: ENCOUNTERING THE EVERYDAY WILD.

Berklee's mission is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career.

Developing the musicianship of all our students is the foundation of our curriculum. We believe that the lessons and qualities derived from that work—the self-discipline needed for excellence, the empathy required of music making and the openness and curiosity essential to creativity—are critical to achievement in any pursuit, musical or otherwise.
