Philadelphia City Institute


A sequence of poems and prose questions, Dwelling: an ecopoem began as a conversation with Martin Heidegger’s essay “Building Dwelling Thinking” and became an expansive journey into the notion of home. With sharp focus, at once moving and lyric, Scott Edward Anderson explores the many facets of our dwelling on earth by drawing upon elements of nature, community, place, and love.

Scott Edward Anderson is the author of Fallow Field and Walks in Nature’s Empire.  He has been a Concordia Fellow at the Millay Colony for the Arts and received the Nebraska Review Award.

This program will be held in the meeting room on the library’s lower level. We regret there is no elevator.
