"Going Green" tells tales of Dumpster Divers

Jeffe Kennedy in Laramie sends this news via her blog, Love, Power and Fairytale Endings:

Earth Day 2009 will see the release of the new anthology, Going Green: True Tales from Gleaners, Scavengers, and Dumpster Divers. Edited by Laura Pritchett. I’m a contributor, with my essay on “Home Recycling,” as are my good friends, the writers Julianne Couch and Chavawn Kelley [also from Laramie]. Here’s what the University of Oklahoma Press has to say about it: “Never mind the Ph.D. and middle-class trappings — Laura Pritchett is a ‘Dumpster Diver’ and proud of it. Ever since she was old enough to navigate the contents of a metal bin, she has reveled in the treasures found in other people’s cast-offs.”

Laura Pritchett of Fort Collins, Colo., was the judge for this year’s creative writing fellowships in fiction. She read with the three fellowship winners at the Equality State Book Festival in Casper last September.
