The Latest Books by Author Buzz Anderson

Something happens when water meets land.

A Jar of Water, the latest book by Buzz Anderson, is a collection of poems inspired by nature and living near the sea.

Invited to write in youth by his beloved Aunt Dotsie, Anderson has spent a lifetime composing—stories that are poetic and poems that are stories. A Jar of Water offers readers a view of gilded mornings, a taste of salted fog, and an experience to savor: the overarching beauty of pausing in the moment.
