In the second half of this interview with Philip Lee Williams, winner of the 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Georgia Writers Association, he discusses his most recent works of poetry, The Flower Seeker: An Epic Poem of William Bartram and The Color of All Things: 99 Love Poems, winner of the Adrian Bond Award for Poetry at Mercer University Press. He describes his early childhood in upstate South Carolina, wandering the valley once traveled by Bartram that housed a British colonial fort before being flooded in creation of Lake Keowee, and talks about the influence of Bartram's work on others. Williams reads poetry from these books while we play some music he composed for The Flower Seeker. The first half of this interview is available in our archives.
