Invitation to read Honoring Nature
Good poems are about more than one thing, and so is this anthology. A coalition of creatives from the first two years of the Authors and Artists Festival honor nature in their unique ways.
From poets’ and artists’ close observations of plants, rivers, and sky we move to question human identity through relationships with animals and the larger web of life. From there we indulge grief, fear, and anger to finally find hope together.
Stories of art, science, adventure, and faith conclude with the enchanted nature of our entanglement in the natural web, and an affirmation of Indigenous cultural knowledge.
Join us to honor nature in voices that mirror her diversity–we hope there’s more than one thing in this collection for everyone who cares about nature and our place within.
