Unlike most books of poems nowadays, Goodbye, Ice by Lawrence Millman has a strong ecological bias. The book offers a window on the natural world of the Arctic and its tradition-bound indigenous people. Climate change, inevitably, raises its ugly head in many of the poems, but the book itself is a lament not just for the loss of ice, but for the loss of the Arctic itself.

Lawrence Millman is a mycologist and author of numerous books, including Our Like Will Not Be There AgainLast PlacesFascinating Fungi of New England, Fungipedia: A Compendium of Mushroom Lore, and At the End of the World. He has made more than 40 expeditions to the Arctic.

This event is co-sponsored by The Write Connection at Thoreau Farm, in partnership with the Thoreau Society and The Concord Festival of Authors.
