Reading with Mark Rozema and Jack Nisbet
Author, photographer, and pilgrim of the American West from Alaska to Arizona, Mark Rozema writes essays deeply rooted in the land he has traversed, the mountains he has climbed, and the communities that he has called home.
He has recently been published in Superstition Review, Sport Literate, The Soundings Review, Weber: The Contemporary West, and Camas: The Nature of the West.
His first collection of essays, Road Trip, was released by Boreal Books, an imprint of Red Hen Press, in September 2015. It won the Washington State Book Award in the category of memoir.
Ancient Places: People and Landscape in the Emerging Northwest is an assemblage of nonfiction stories that reveal the symbiotic relationship of people and place in the Pacific Northwest. Nisbet engages some of the touchstones in Northwest history in this compelling collection of stories about natural and human history. This event is part of our Nature of Writing Series, in partnership with North Cascades Institute.
PNBA Book Award winner and best-selling author Jack Nisbet is a historian, teacher, and author who focuses on the intersection of human history and natural history in the Pacific Northwest. He is the author of the highly regarded Sources of the River, for which he was awarded the Murray Morgan Prize by the Washington State Historical Society.
