The Mary Oliver Fan Club

Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.
-Mary Oliver

“Reading Oliver’s poems could feel like a form of praying, it was prayer we could share.” ~The Chicago Tribune
Mary Oliver (1935-2019) is one of America’s most beloved poets. She won both the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Her observations of the natural world described in plain language and great detail celebrate nature and encourage us to open our eyes and become observers, too. She inspires us and challenges us to live fully our “one wild and precious life.” Oliver’s contemplative poems open our minds and hearts to beauty and wisdom. Bring a favorite Mary Oliver poem and join other fans to celebrate her life and work.
