Scott Edward Anderson’s new book of poems is Dwelling: an ecopoem. David Gessner says, “In the spirit of Gary Snyder’s Turtle Island andThe Practice of the Wild, Scott Edward Anderson leads us on a journey into place and the idea of place…driven by the burning questions of how we find a home on this planet, in this transient, often brutal world, and how we heal through home.” He’s published two previous collections,FallowField and Walks in Nature’s Empire. He’s been a Concordia Fellow at the Millay Colony for the Arts and he won the Nebraska Review Award.
