Sitka Center for Art and Ecology is excited to host a book reading with past Writer-in-Residence Nick Neely on Wednesday, November 16, 2016, at 6pm.
Nick was a Sitka Center Writer-in-Residence for 3 ½ months in 2015. He returns to share his new book, Coast Range, a collection of essays focusing on the interactions between humans and the natural world within the California and Oregon coastal ranges. Neely capably explores the complexity of his subjects with polish and finesse, looking carefully and thinking deeply. The presentation begins at 6pm in Boyden Studio, light refreshments provided. This event is free and open to the public – a great opportunity to visit the Sitka Center!
Nick Neely’s work is published in journals such as Kenyon Review, The Threepenny Review, The Georgia Review, Audubon, Orion, and High Country News. He holds MFAs in poetry and nonfiction from Columbia University and Hunter College. He is the recipient of a PEN Northwest Boyden Wilderness Writing Residency, a UC-Berkeley Food and Farming Journalism Fellowship, and the 2015 John Burroughs Nature Essay Award. He lives in Hailey, Idaho with his wife, the painter Sarah Bird.
Committed to expanding the relationships between art, nature and humanity, the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology is renowned for its workshop and residency programs. Exploration of the coastal environment has remained a key component to the Sitka Center’s vitality. Located at Cascade Head, with views of the Pacific Ocean, the Sitka Center offers a place where artists, writers, environmental scientists and musicians of all abilities and backgrounds come to nourish and inspire their creativity, which ripples out into our world making it a brighter place for all.
