Richard Nelson reads from Heart and Blood: Living with Deer in America (1997), including excerpts from the chapters "Heart of The Hunter" and "In Search of Eden." These chapters cover topics such as hunting and predation, and they are written through the lens of the author's experiences as an anthropologist in Alaska.
Peggy Shumaker reads poems from Cairn: New and Selected Poems and Prose (2018) as well as one uncollected poem. This reading was originally given with Maurya Simon as the inaugural reading in the Tom Sanders Memorial Reading Series.
