Nina Munteanu

Limnologist and aquatic ecologist Nina Munteanu explores the many dimensions of water through her journey with water as mother, educator, and scientist. Nina’s book “Water Is…The Meaning of Water” is part history, part science and part philosophy and spirituality. The book examines water’s many anomalous properties and what these mean to us. In sharing her personal journey with this mysterious elixir, Nina explores water’s many “identities” and, ultimately, our own. Her book “Water Is…The Meaning of Water” was Margaret Atwood’s first choice in the New York Times ‘Year in Reading.’
 
Nina Munteanu is a Canadian ecologist, limnologist and author of over a dozen non-fiction books, novels and short stories. She consulted in the aquatic sciences as senior scientist for over 20 years and conducted aquatic research at the University of Victoria and Concordia University. Nina teaches writing at University of Toronto and George Brown College in Toronto. Her upcoming novel “A Diary in the Age of Water” released in May 2020 by Inanna Publications, chronicles four generations of women and their relationship with water during a time of catastrophic change.
