“I am very excited to be back in Green River and reconnect to a place I often went (very fondly) as a child. To be in the desert. To have time to think and write about place, poetics, and the pastoral, around which my writing always orbits. To meet and learn about Green River dwellers, artists, farmers, librarians, archivists, laborers, families, students, passers-through, hangers-on, of the past and present. To eat melon.”
