In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of W.S. Merwin’s book The Shadow of Sirius, and in honor of W.S. Merwin’s 91st birthday on September 30th, we are pleased to offer a special gift to our generous donors.
Starting today, and until midnight on September 30th, donors who contribute $75 or more to The Merwin Conservancy will *receive a soft cover edition of The Shadow of Sirius. Donations will support the Conservancy’s efforts to inspire innovation in the arts and sciences by advancing the ideas of W.S. Merwin.
Published in 2008 by Copper Canyon Press, and awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2009, The Shadow of Sirius is a book that Harold Bloom once called “the very best of all Merwin” and the Pulitzer Prize committee described as “a collection of luminous, often tender poems that focus on the profound power of memory“.
Your generous gift allows us to continue to host some of the world’s greatest visionaries and thought leaders in our Green Room salon series, inspire teachers and youth through our education programs, and to continue to offer unique experiences in the palm forest through our Open Garden Days program.
Inspired to support our mission and programs?
Thank you for your generous donation.
*Note: if your billing address is different than where you’d like the photo print shipped, please make a note in the donation form.
