For April is Poetry Month I will be presenting a program at The Gunn Library on Earth Day, April 22, 2021, at 6:30 by Zoom. I will be in conversation with Margaret Gibson, poet laureate of CT. We will be reading a few of our own poems, and reading some from other Connecticut poets from the new anthology Waking Up to the Earth: Connecticut Poets in a Time of Global Climate Crisis. This anthology was edited by Connecticut’s Poet Laureate Margaret Gibson and includes work by Connecticut poets who write of their relationship with the earth in a time of climate crisis. The scope of the poems goes far beyond Connecticut to the whole ecosystem we humans share. [Click Here to Register]
