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 Again, Last Places, Fascinating 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 Zoom event is part of The Write Connection at Thoreau Farm: A Program in Partnership with The Thoreau Society. The Write Connection is an exciting new program of lectures and writing workshops. Learn more about The Write Connection 

This Zoom event is ALSO part of The Concord Festival of Authors.
