braiding-sweetgrass-web-book-cover2I have so much to tell you. For one thing, just the other day I tasted my first pawpaw, straight from the wild grove that’s thriving in our neighbor’s backyard. For another, I heard Gary Snyder read his poems in the big tent at White Lotus Farms last month–always a sublime experience for me. But for the time being I’m tied up with some compelling undergraduates, and while I wouldn’t have it any other way, I do miss writing about cool things I come across out in the world.

One of the in-person things I do for fun is host the new Eco Book Club at Literati Bookstore in downtown Ann Arbor. On Monday, November 16, at 7 PM, we’ll be talking about a book I savored over the summer: Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants, by Robin Wall Kimmerer. Please consider joining us. Even if you don’t get a chance to read the whole book, we’d love to have you along. And of course Literati has copies available.



And I’ll bring some pawpaws,if any last that long.
