Kathryn Aalto is landscape designer, historian, lecturer and a New York Times Bestselling author.

For the past twenty-five years, her focus has been on places where nature and culture intersect: teaching literature of nature and place, designing gardens, and writing about the natural world. She is the author of two books: The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh: A Walk Through the Forest that Inspired the Hundred Acre Wood (2015) — a People Magazine Best Pick in Nonfiction and a feature on National Public Radio — and Nature and Human Intervention (2011).

As a writer, she has a special interest in the geography of childhood and literary landscapes.

Reviews of her latest book and her own writing have appeared in newspapers and magazines around the world including The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, The Boston Globe and The Chicago Tribune. She gives keynote talks and lectures widely, both nationally and internationally, to arboretums, libraries, historical schools and garden and civic clubs on a range of topics including The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh, literature of nature and place and creative nonfiction.
