Writing Workshop, Reading & Book Signing: Katherine Hauswirth

On Saturday, August 5, 2-4 p.m., join Katherine Hauswirth, author of The Book of Noticing: Collections and Connections on the Trail, for a nature writing workshop, reading and book signing at The Connecticut Audubon Society, 1361 Main Street, Glastonbury CT 06033.  CAS members $5, non-members $8; email kneville@ctadubon.org or call 860-633-8402 to reserve your seat.

The session will start with a brief reading from the book and some thoughts/resources on nature writing; then the group will part ways to so that attendees can spend some reflective time outdoors.  We will meet back to write and share what we’ve written (sharing optional).

Katherine Hauswirth’s writing focuses on connection and contemplation inspired by the natural world.  She has been published in Christian Science Monitor, Orion online, Whole Life Times, and Connecticut Woodlands.  Her blog, First Person Naturalist, reflects on experiencing and learning about nature.  Her awards include artist residencies at Trail Wood (Connecticut Audubon’s Edwin Way Teale memorial sanctuary) and Acadia National Park, and first place in the Soul-Making Keats Literary Competition.  She lives with her husband and son in Deep River, Connecticut.  (homeboundpublications.com, photo by Kelly Kancyr.)
