Kim Todd writes about history and science. She focused on forgotten stories—uncovering events and people that, while overlooked, continue to shape our world. She is the author of four books of literary nonfiction: Sensational: The Hidden History of America’s “Girl Stunt Reporters”; Sparrow; Chrysalis, Maria Sibylla Merian and the Secrets of Metamorphosis; and Tinkering with Eden, a Natural History of Exotics in America. Todd’s articles and essays have appeared in Orion, Sierra Magazine, Smithsonian, and Best American Science and Nature Writing anthologies, among other places. She currently is nonfiction faculty in the MFA program at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, and a senior fellow with the Environmental Leadership Program.
