Gary Snyder at the Anderson Center
The Anderson Center is pleased to announce that Gary Snyder, celebrated Pulitzer-prize winning poet, will read from his published works and be interviewed by poet James Lenfestey in the Historic Barn at the Anderson Center at Tower View. Book sales and signings will follow the reading and interview.

As a poet, Snyder has written, I hold the most archaic values on earth. They go back to the late Paleolithic: the fertility of the soil, the magic of animals, the power-vision in solitude, the love and ecstasy of the dance, and the common work of the tribe.

Gary Snyder has published 16 books of poetry and prose. He is the recipient of virtually every prestigious award for poetry in the United States, including the Pulitzer Prize for his best-selling book, Turtle Island. Other awards include the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, the Shelly Memorial Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Bollingen Poetry Prize,  the John Hay Award for nature writing, and the Robert Kirsch Lifetime Achievement Award from the Los Angeles Times. His first book, Rip Rap, published in 1959, is considered a classic in American poetry and his 1990 collection of essays, Practice of the Wild, is one of the most influential books about the environment in the last 50 years. Snyder has been a Guggenheim Fellow and is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. A professor emeritus of literature of the University of California at Davis, he was named one of Americas Top 100 Visionaries by The Utne Reader. Since 1970, he has lived with his family in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in Northern California.
