Daniel Skach-Mills Nominated for Oregon Book Award

The Hut Beneath the Pine: Tea Poems, a collection of poetry by Marylhurst alum Daniel Skach-Mills, has been selected as an Oregon Literary Arts finalist for the 2012 Oregon Book Award. The judge was Carl Phillips.

Skach-Mills drew inspiration for many of the poems from the Lan Su Chinese Garden, where he has served as a docent since 2005.

Northwest author and poet Margaret Chula says: "Reading these poems, I feel like I'm in a Sung dynasty landscape painting, sitting in a mountain hut with a sage who pours me tea and recites poetry. The poems in The Hut Beneath the Pine embody the spirit of the Tao, the rhythmic flow of nature."

Winners will be announced at the Oregon Book Awards ceremony on April 23, 2012.

The Hut Beneath the Pine is available for purchase at the Marylhurst University bookstore.
