Each spring, the Orion Book Award is presented to books that deepen the reader’s connection to the natural world through fresh ideas and excellence in writing. Initiated in 2007, the award has been conferred annually by Orion
, a bimonthly magazine that publishes writing and art that explore the connection between nature and culture, and seeks to inspire new thinking about how humanity might live on Earth justly, sustainably, and joyously.
The award winners will be announced in the second week of May.
