Small Books - Encounters with the Natural World

Small Books - Encounters with the Natural World
February 1- February 28
Reception: Thursday, Feb. 2nd from 5pm to 7pm
Location is Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary, 127 Combs Rd., Easthampton

Mac Everett has responded to encounters with the natural world by creating small, hand-made books. They include reflections on mountains, plants, seasons, weather, people, animals, lakes, and rivers. Sources for inspiration are both local and exotic. Most books are collections of haiku; some are brief narratives. Come prepared to sit and read for a bit from a mobile library of works, many of which will fit in a single hand.

“I take time to sit quietly and try to focus on the subtleties and small beauties. I have often asked myself: “How can I use words to capture this special moment in nature?”
