Salt March Diary Author Mark Seth Lender
Tuesday, June 21 at 7 p.m. in the Miller Memorial Central Library Friends’ Room.
In its continuing series of Author Talks, Hamden Public Library has invited Mark Seth Lender, photographer, syndicated columnist, and contributor to NPR’s Living on Earth to speak about his recently published Salt Marsh Diary: A Year on the Connecticut Coast.
Lender’s book was reviewed in Library Journal as a “lively work” that will “appeal to the poetic at heart and nature lovers alike, particularly those who feel the gulf between the world they live in and the simplicity of the world outside.” From Audubon Magazine: “Lender has an artist’s eye, a poet’s ear, and a reporter’s grasp… he inserts you in the planet’s most productive habitat--the rich, fragrant interface of sea and land where the only real “news,” as Thoreau called it, happens throughout the year, and all of it is good and beautiful.” His blog at connecticutrivergazette.com/blog combines samples of his photographic work and writings with information about upcoming field work.
Author Talks are free and open to the public. For further information, call the library at 203-287-2680.
