A Dangerous New World: Maine Voices on the Climate Crisis, edited by Meghan Sterling and Kathleen Sullivan, is an anthology of work by 65 writers and 20 artists, who responded to a call for essays, poetry and art work on the effects of climate change –  on their lives, their communities, their families, and their futures. The resulting anthology is a many-layered and complex mosaic of voices and visions, of thoughtful appraisals, of careful observations, of emotional responses, and of scientific analyses. We see changes along the coast  through the eyes of lobstermen and clammers, changes in the woods through the eyes of forest walkers and birders. We hear stories of changes in the landscape, feelings of foreboding and loss. Through poems and essays, photographs, drawings and paintings, these artists and writers share their deep sense of the danger that lies ahead, and their understanding of what can and must be done to prevent greater disasters to our land, our waters, our air, our forests, our animals, and all that we depend on for our own life on this planet. 

Published by Littoral Books with a foreword by Governor Janet Mills.

All profits from the publication will be donated to 350 Maine.
