Advisory Board Member, Gay, Finalist for National Book Award

 

Above: Poet, Professor, and Natural Bridge Advisory Board Member. Ross Gay.

 

Natural Bridge is happy to announce the success of one of our advisory board, Ross Gay. His newest poetry collection, Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude, is a finalist for the 2015 National Book Award.

Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude is a sustained meditation on that which goes away—loved ones, the seasons, the earth as we know it—that tries to find solace in the processes of the garden and the orchard. That is, this is a book that studies the wisdom of the garden and orchard, those places where all—death, sorrow, loss—is converted into what might, with patience, nourish us.
