April 1, 2021 — Anne Coray — Green Shoots from Old Roots: Writing about the Environment

Anne Coray, author of the recently published novel Lost Mountain, will discuss her writing and changes she’s seen as a resident of remote Southwest Alaska. She will also explore the evolution of nature writing and its contemporary offshoot—eco-literature.

Coray is the author of three poetry collections, coeditor of Crosscurrents North: Alaskans on the Environment, and coauthor of a publication titled Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. Her work has appeared in many literary journals, including the Southern Review, Northwest Review, North American Review, Poetry, and Alaska Quarterly Review. A five-time Pushcart Prize nominee, Coray is the recipient of fellowships from the Alaska State Council on the Arts and the Rasmuson Foundation. She divides her time between Homer and her birthplace, remote Lake Clark (Qizhjeh Vena).
