Ehrlich visit marks 2 year anniversary of Tohoku tsunami

Gretel Ehrlich, notable poet and nature writer who visits the Writers Institute tomorrow, is the author most recently of Facing the Wave (2013), an account of her travels in Japan in the aftermath of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, and the subsequent meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Today's anniversary of the Fukushima catastrophe is being marked in the press throughout the world.

Winner of the 2010 Thoreau Prize for excellence in nature writing, Ehrlich is the author of numerous works about her explorations of diverse environments, including western China, Wyoming and—in particular—the “high Arctic.”
