Books & Culture names The Flower Seeker Book of the Year

Prominent national literary magazine Books & Culture has named The Flower Seeker: An Epic Poem of William Bartram as its book of the year. The epic poem, by Philip Lee Williams and published by Mercer University Press, is written from the perspective of 18th Century naturalist William Bartram and based on his book, The Travels.

“I was completely stunned,” Williams recalled of hearing of the honor. “It certainly made my Christmas. I was pleased for me, but equally happy for Mercer University and for Mercer University Press. It does my heart good to see the Press getting national recognition for their work and it has been a joy for me to be involved in this project.”
