Scott Russell Sanders is coming to Ashland, Ohio on April 13 as part of the Ashland University English Department’s Spring Reading Series. Sanders will also present an evening seminar titled Human Health and Common Wealth, as part of this year’s Symposium Against Indifference which focuses on environmental sustainability this year.

Sanders is the author of twenty books of fiction and nonfiction, including Hunting for Hope and A Conservationist Manifesto. His most recent books are Earth Works: Selected Essays (2012) and Divine Animal: A Novel (2014). A collection of stories titled Dancing in Dreamtime will be published in 2016, along with a new edition of his documentary narrative, Stone Country.

Among his literary honors are the Lannan Literary Award, the John Burroughs Essay Award, the Mark Twain Award, the Cecil Woods Award for Nonfiction, the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award, and fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. He is a Distinguished Professor Emeritus of English at Indiana University.

Sanders’ nonfiction reading will take place in the Hawkins Conard Student Center Auditorium at 4 p.m. and his presentation for the symposium will be at 7 p.m. also in the Student Center Auditorium. Both events are free and open to the public. (The Student Center is located on King Road near the 3-way intersection of King Road, College Avenue, and Claremont Avenue in Ashland.)
