The anthology Hearth is a collection of essays, stories, poems and art with a common theme. As you have time to read, you’ll enjoy each piece and begin to see connections. Some ideas that come up multiple times are nature, technology, migration, and our sense of home and place. Below are some suggestions for pairing readings.
"Finding the Hearth" by Barry Lopez & "To Live" by Gretel Ehrlich
