Jill McCabe Johnson and For Love of Orcas
Jill McCabe Johnson will be at Eagle Harbor Book Company on Thursday, November 14th at 7PM.
After the Southern Resident orca Tahlequah swam with her newly born dead calf for 17 days in the summer of 2018, scientists, poets, and writers responded to her grief and the plight of the endangered orcas in this moving anthology. Edited by poets Andrew Shattuck McBride and Jill McCabe Johnson, the anthology features poetry, essays, and environmental writing from more than ninety authors. Wandering Aengus Press is donating proceeds from the book to the SeaDoc Society for their efforts in helping restore the Southern Resident orca population.
