Presented by Point Reyes Books at Streaming Arts

LOCAL>> Gillian Osborne – Green Green Green

Author reads from her collection of hybrid essays – poetic and personal

Gillian Osborne reads from Green Green Green (Nightboat Books), a collection of hybrid essays that engage the intersection of habitats, horticulture, and histories both poetic and personal.

“Gillian Osborne writes prose lithely and thinks with quickness and imagination. I think I learned something or saw something freshly on almost every page of her Green Green Green.” — Robert Hass

This event will be streamed on our Crowdcast channel.

 

For earlier writers like Emily Dickinson and William Blake, the green world was a space of haunted opposites: life and death, innocence and experience, and the sensitivities of plants.

In the essays, letters, repetitions, and experiments of Green Green Green, Gillian Osborne draws on a poetic and scientific archive spanning from the late eighteenth century to the present to explore contemporary meanings of green as both/and: environment as ailing and vital, global and close to home.

This is nature writing as reading, and homemaking, in vicinity with others.

 

Gillian Osborne is a writer, educator, and aspirational gardener living in California. She is the co-editor of a collection of critical essays on modern and contemporary ecopoetics, and teaches for the Harvard Extension School and the Bard College Language & Thinking Program.
