We are so grateful for the chance to publish these amazing books. Our 4th book has just been signed and to celebrate this exciting news, Green Writers Press intern,Â Alexandra Sandman-Pitonyak, will be taking the train this coming Wednesday, June 26th, from Montpelier to Brattleboro, where she and publisher, Dede Cummings, will meet for the first time!
Lexi, as she is known, is working with Dede on our newest title, So Little Time. She is instrumental in bringing this book to life, and will work with us at GWP to help guide the book through to publication in September.
It is a Vermont, end-of-nature, beautiful ‘interpretive’ Â book, and the above link will show you the cover and description….Â perhapsÂ you’d be inspired to contribute something? A percentage of net sales will got toÂ 350.orgÂ and the book is to be printed in Vermont using soy inks on 100% recycled paper. Here is a description:
So Little TimeÂ is a revolving door of political activism, spirituality, nature, and humanity. It is a call to action, where urgency meets poetry in no uncertain terms, and asks, âWhat hour are we in?â Authored by environmentalist Bill McKibben, and Irish poet, U. S. citizen, and Vermont activist, Greg Delanty, it takes its cue from the grassroots sensibility of Vermont, stripping down decades of unwavering ideals to arrive at an interpretive look at what it means to be âGreenâ in an evolving world. A work of education and art as invigorating as the poets, teachers, and activists who inspired it,Â So Little TimeÂ addresses what it means to take up action for something as simple as good, healthy, and clean living. It stands on a fundamental set of questions: âWhat are we looking at?â âWhat are we seeing?â âWhatâs really there?â Then asks, âWhatâsÂ actuallyÂ there?â
So Little TimeÂ is more than a coffee table book; rather it is a visual platform, a reflection of a state of mindâclear and focused at the centerâthat becomes something else around the edges.
Please let us know what you think, and of course if you’d like to contribute! The book link can be found here, and we welcome submissions, feedback, ideas, etc., always!
We leave you with this link to a poem of Greg Delanty’s entitled, The Alien, which will be in our book, preprinted with permission.
