Linda Hogan (Chickasaw) is a widely praised poet, novelist, and essayist whose awards include the American Book Award, the Colorado Book Award, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writers Circle of the Americas, and the 2016 Thoreau Prize from PEN America. Her lyrical poetry, in verse and prose, is at the heart of all her achievements. Her latest collection, A History of Kindness, tenderly excavates the ways that history informs the present. Exploring our world as it wavers between loss and survival, her poetry envisions a future alive with hope for our planet as a healthy and sustainable home for all beings, human and nonhuman alike.
