Forager, fungi enthusiast and Ockham NZ Book Awards shortlisted Olivia ’Liv’ Sisson has been enchanted by the minutiae of nature for as long as she can remember. Raised in the US where she first learned how to spot small wonders in the Blue Ridge Mountains, she has spent countless hours exploring the flora, fauna and fungi that define her treasured adopted home of Aotearoa New Zealand.

Join her for an illustrated journey through the unique and diverse fungi our country has to offer, as she shares her tips for identifying species and cooking with the best edible varieties, as well as discussing the remarkable story of how these incredible organisms have shaped the world as we know it and the role they are playing in modern medical and environmental research. She talks to Sonya Wilson.
