John Lane returns to City Lights Bookstore to present his latest book,Coyote Settles the South, on Friday, August 19th, at 6:30pm. Ron Rash, author of Serena, says “John Lane takes readers into the heart of nature as well as into the nature of the heart, and he writes with wonder, wisdom, and profound attentiveness.”
Coyote Settles the South is about Lane’s journey through the Southeast, as he visits coyote territories, meets and observes those who interact with the animals, and gains insight on the migration of the American coyote, an animal that, in the end, surprises him with its intelligence, resilience, and amazing adaptability.
Lane is a professor of English and environmental studies at Wofford College. He has published several volumes of poetry, essays, and a novel, as well as a selection of his online columns, The Best of the Kudzu Telegraph.
