Scott Sanders’ Conservationist Manifesto

Bloomington-based author and Indiana University Professor Scott Russell Sanders is closely associated with writing that expresses intimacy with a geographical location. So much so, that the online publication Elsewhere: A Journal for the Literature of Place has named its top nonfiction prize after him.

Scott Sanders will premiere the book in a special event on February 23rd at FARM-Bloomington. The evening will also feature live music by Tom Roznowski, and a sampling of Hoosier tapas and locally brewed beers. Find out more.
