 The Academy of American Poets awards.

Poet Gary Snyder has been awarded the Academy of American Poets’ $100,000 Wallace Stevens Award. (Clickhere to read a statement from fellow poet Jane Hirshfeld.)

Our congratulations to him for this latest honor. (He also recently received PEN New England’s “Henry David Thoreau Prize” for Literary Excellence in Nature Writing.) Here at the Shambhala Sun we’ve had the honor of publishing his writing; click through here for links to see for yourself what makes Snyder so special.
