about

"It''s easy to live in the moment when you''re immersed in Ackerman''s glorious prose." —Washington Post

In an eye-opening sequence of personal meditations through the cycle of seasons, one of our most celebrated storyteller-poet-naturalists awakens us to the world at dawn. Diane Ackerman draws from sources as diverse as meteorology, world religion, etymology, art history, and poetry in order to celebrate that moment in which the deepest arcades of life and matter become visible. From spring in Ithaca, New York, to winter in Palm Beach, Florida, Dawn Light is an impassioned call to revel in our numbered days on a turning earth.

A Los Angeles Times Favorite Book, Booklist Editors Choice Award, Library Corner Best of List, and San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of 2009.

Diane Ackerman has been the finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction in addition to many other awards and recognitions for her work, which include the best-selling The Zookeeper''s Wife and A Natural History of the Senses. She lives in Ithaca, New York.
