I was proud to have my essay “Saving Trees” included in the grand anthology from Outpost 19: ROOTED: The Best New Arboreal Nonfiction, edited by Josh MacIvor Anderson. So I’m pleased to see Daegan Miller’s tweet recommending the book today (and mention of my essay along with essays by the late Brian Doyle, Annie Bellerose, Paul Lisicky, Megan Gette, and Renée E. D'Aoust). ROOTED is a wonderful collection!

Another amazing book worth picking up: *Rooted: The Best New Arboreal Nonfiction* with an intro by @billmckibben and essays by @Paul_Lisicky, @idahobuzzy, @doylejacq, @808omega, Annie Bellerose, and the late Brian Doyle, among many others. http://outpost19.com/Rooted/
Daegan Miller is an environmentalist and Thoreau scholar with a lovely prose style who sometimes publishes in larger venues. I first came across his work in a personal essay on books and trees he published in Electric Literature a year ago. He's just what an academic should be, in my opinion.
Just read proofs for "Little Colored Pills" in SWEET, so it should be out any day. "The Red Ball" will be out in THE CABINET OF HEED tomorrow. And I have a reprint of "Step Right Up" coming out in a couple of days from DERELICT LIT. And classes start Tuesday, but I'm almost ready.
