Writing the Land: Windblown I, Book Launch & Art Reception
A Creative Project from the Branford Land Trust & the Branford Arts and Cultural Alliance

You don’t want to miss this special Book Launch and Art Reception for Writing the Land: Windblown I on Sunday, November 13 from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. The event is hosted by the Branford Land Trust and the Branford Arts and Cultural Alliance, and will be held at the BACA Gallery in downtown Branford. Poet Laurel Peterson will read a selection of her poems about Branford’s Beacon Hill Preserve, and the book’s featured artwork by BLT and BACA members will be on display.

Writing the Land: Windblown I is a national anthology featuring the work of poets writing about conserved lands for 11 land trusts across the country. Published by NatureCulture LLC, this creative collaboration between BACA and the BLT features four poems by Peterson, and artwork by local artists Tricia Bohan, Lauren Brown, Gerry Casanova, Jan Doyle, Silvia Drewery, Barbara Dwyer, Sharon Hart, Lisa Hesselgrave, Carol Cable Hurst, Trish Kater, Jeanette Mobeck, Sylvia Ohlrich, Gaile Ramey, Dierdre Baker Schiffer, Maria Stockmal, Robert Thomas, and Patricia Towle.

This book was made possible by funding from the Deirdre Baker Schiffer Fund to the Branford Land Trust, with special thanks to BACA volunteers for jurying the art submissions. Proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit the conservation efforts of the Branford Land Trust.
