Advent Reflections from Michigan's Northern Woods with Author Gayle Boss

Saturday November 12, 2016: 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm -- Pittsfield Branch: Program Room

Inspired by the landscape and animals of the north woods, Michigan author Gayle Boss writes with the heart of a poet in her new collection of Advent reflections All Creation Waits.

Twenty-five portraits meditate on how wild animals adapt to winter's darkness and cold, inspiring us with the ancient wisdom that darkness is not the end, but the way to a new beginning. Each reflection is accompanied by a striking and sensitive woodcut in deep blacks and brilliant whites by artist David G. Klein.

Be inspired with the beauty of winter and the natural world as Gayle Boss discusses how this unique volume came to be. She will also take a closer look at the gorgeous woodcut illustrations in large-scale.

This event will be held at AADL's Pittsfield location, overlooking the wetlands where many of the animals that inspired this volume find a home. This event will also include a book signing, and books will be for sale.
