Putney Library celebrates spring with an evening of women nature writers

PUTNEY — On Wednesday, May 15, at 7 p.m., join Michelle Blake, Putney Public Library's Writer in Residence, for an evening of women nature writers.

Participants will read and celebrate the women who have created their own particular worlds in the fields of nature writing - Rachel Carson, of course, and Annie Dillard, Susan Fenimore Cooper, Rebecca Solnit, Diane Ackerman, Leslie Silko, Gretel Ehrlich, Sue Hubbell, Terry Tempest Williams, Camille Dungy, and many more.

Blake will do a short introduction to Sue Hubbell, one of her favorite nature writers, and then participants will have a chance to read passages from and talk about work by one of these writers.

The community is invited to check the library for a display of books of these writers that the Putney Library holds or to ask the library staff to order books from other libraries.

The Putney Public Library is located at 55 Main St. This event is free and open to the public.
