A busy time of year you ask? Â
. . . it is, but we are pretty excited here at GWP, with the launch of So Little Time: Words and Images for a World in Climate Crisis.Â The book just grew, and grew, at the end we added new poems and things got moved around, and the book emerged better and more beautiful than I could have imagined!
I tracked down Neil Louie the photographer from the Nadleh Whut’en Band in British Columbiaâ€”a part of the First Nations groupâ€”and Neil graciously agreed to send us his fabulous photo of his uncle, Chief Martin Louie.
I addition to that photo, I got to know the folks at the Tribal Office there, and am sending them some free copies of the book. The First Nations group is opposing the twin tar sands pipeline at Enbridge, and we need to support them as much as we can! I hope our books sells out, and we can donate to them, too!
Neil read the website about the the book, and offered another photo (if I wanted it) â€” well, of course I said Â yes â€” Everyone has been so generous! â€” and he sent a photo of the diseased tree that I am using on the title page spread. I am so honored to have Neil in the book!
I am going to embed a few videos of the actual poets reading some of the poems in our book!
The first one if from Adrienne Rich, and her poems is called “What Kind of Times Are These”:
