Sunday, April 10, 2022 – 4-5:30 pm EST
I will be cohosting (with Meg Weston) this event and reading my poetry with fellow Maine poets Kathleen Ellis, Gary Lawless, Iris LeCates, and Meghan Sterling in an intergenerational celebration of our place in nature.
Find out more about these poets here.
Each poet will recommend a book, share a favorite poem by another poet, and read their poetry.
A lively Q&A with the audience is sure to follow so bring your burning questions.
Ecopoetry (a relatively new term) offers contemporary views of our complex interrelationships within nature, often exploring ways places influence culture. Sometimes celebratory and sometimes critical, ecopoetry looks closely at personal sensitivity and social change.
