Event Description

"A Fine Canopy"

FLOW's Dave Dempsey is joined by poet Alison Swan, who will read from "A Fine Canopy" with Q&A to follow. About this Event Alison Swan’s collection of poems, "A Fine Canopy", illustrates how the natural world envelops and encloses us with so many beautiful things: crowns of leaves, the ubiquitous blue sky, our luminous moon, and snow. So much snow. An eco-poet whose writing shows her advocacy for natural resources, in this collection Swan calls the reader to witness, appreciate, and sustain this world before it becomes too late. Published in October 2020. Born in the Great Lakes basin, Alison Swan is a Mesa Refuge alum and a Petoskey Prize for Grassroots Environmental Leadership co-winner. Her poems and environmental writing have appeared in two chapbooks and in many anthologies and journals. She teaches at Western Michigan University and lives in the Huron River and Kalamazoo River watersheds. Her Great Lakes collection, Fresh Water, was named a Michigan Notable Book. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/flow-presents-a-fine-canopy-with-alison-swan-tickets-132594695303
