The Environmental Solutions Initiative at MIT presents "The Making of The Narrow Bridge" with Deborah Cramer, ESI Visiting Scholar and author of A Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey

Deborah Cramer lives with her family at the edge of a salt marsh in Gloucester, Massachusetts, where each year she awaits the arrival of horseshoe crabs and alewives in tidal creeks, and the passage of migrating sandpipers and herons.  She writes about science, nature, and the environment, and is a visiting scholar at MIT’s Environmental Solutions Initiative.

Cramer has written three books, Great Waters: An Atlantic PassageSmithsonian Ocean: Our Water Our World, and The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey. She has lectured about her writing and the sea on both sides of the Atlantic, at science and maritime museums, environmental and teachers’ organizations, and undergraduate and graduate schools in oceanography and journalism. Her writing has most recently appeared in Audubon, BBC Wildlife, the Boston Globe and on the op-ed page of the New York Times.

The Narrow Edge has received the Best Book Award from the National Academy of Sciences, the Rachel Carson Book Award from the Society of Environmental Journalists, and the Reed Award in Environmental Writing from the Southern Environmental Law Center.
