Advance Praise for So LIttle Time—Pub Date February 11, 2014:
“A book of eloquent testimony, in poetry and image, to the mystery and beauty immanent in nature, now so desperately imperiled. Like all art, it asks that we look up and see.” —Publishers Weekly
“Environmentalists long ago won the scientific battle, but we needed to reach people’s hearts as well. This superb volume will do exactly that.”—Bill McKibben
Our FIRST television appearance not he wonderful Vermont station, WCAX, Channel 3 News. Reporter, Adam Sullivan, did a one-on-one interview with GWP founder, Dede Cummings. You can watch the episode here.
The Rutland Herald ‘s Kevin O’Connor wrote a wonderful feature article that was on the front page, in color, above the fold (and all that)!!! This article also appeared on the front page of their sister publication, The Times Argus. Eventually, the story got picked up on-line, and ran in Publisher’s Weekly news! Here is a quote from Dede, from the article:
“I see that rather than just go along with business as usual, it’s time for a change,” Cummings says. “What the localvore movement did for the food industry, we want to be for publishing.”
