South Dakota Author Jerry Wilson will visit Mitchell Public Library today at 5 PM in the library community room. He'll discuss his memoir Seasons of the Coyote and discuss how we can connect with the natural world.
His presentation, titled "Making Peace with the Natural World," begins with stories followed by a discussion about the need for us to open our eyes, ears, and hearts to the natural, to recognize that we are parts of an intricate and tattered fabric of life.
Jerry taught literature and writing at several colleges and universities before years as managing editor of South Dakota Magazine. He now devotes himself to books that explore the natural world and to fiction that re-imagines history and contemporary life. His 2018 eco-memoir Seasons of the Coyote spans one calendar year, 103 encounters routine and extraordinary in the natural realm of which he is part.
