Tallgrass Conversations Book Reading & Discussion at Prairiewoods
- 2 - 3:30 p.m.
- All Ages
Prairiewoods played a significant role in the inspiration for Tallgrass Conversations: In Search of the Prairie Spirit, a book of short writings and photographs, and much of its content—in both word and image—reflects co-author Thomas Dean’s Prairiewoods experience. Poetic, beautiful, meditative and informative, Tallgrass Conversations (co-authored with Cindy Crosby) encourages experiencing the prairie through the heart, mind and spirit, as well as sight, sound and other senses. With a special focus on Prairiewoods, Tom will discuss how the book came together, including how the idea of “conversations” with the living world informs the writing and photos. In this afternoon at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha), he will read selections from the book and share photos that accompany the short writings. After the reading, all are welcome to sow seeds in the prairie. A free-will offering will be accepted, and registration is requested by the previous day. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at www.Prairiewoods.org or 319-395-6700.
