Between Birdsong and Boulder: Poems on the Life of Gaia is a meeting of science and spirituality, transmuting the story of the cosmos through a lyrical lens that calls upon the rhythms and language of scripture. The Ancient Greek personification of Mother Earth, Gaia, is a vehicle through which the ungraspable enormity of existence throughout time is marveled at and appreciated. The author of the collection, Athenian Bob Ambrose Jr., is a retired environmental engineer with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency who published his first book of poetry, Journey to Embarkation, in 2016. Ambrose will be joined in conversation about the collection with Amy Rosemond, aquatic ecosystem ecologist, biogeochemist and Distinguished Research Professor at the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia. There will be a book signing after the reading and discussion.
