Fire & Rain - Special Reading (Corte Madera Store)

Sunday, January 27, 2019 - 4:00pm

Coeditor Lucille Lang Day and five contributors will read from Fire and Rain: Ecopoetry of California, an anthology of poems about California ecosystems. The anthology is divided into eight sections corresponding to bio-zones: Coast and Ocean; Coastal Redwoods; Hills and Canyons; Fields and Meadows; Desert; Rivers, Lakes, and Lagoons; Sierra Nevada and Cascades; and Cities Towns, and Roads. Fire and rain are two of the most important factors that shape California ecosystems, and the anthology includes many poems about the effects of fire, rain, and drought throughout the state.

Day, an award-winning poet who worked for many years as a science writer and science educator, brings a scientific perspective to the anthology. Her coeditor, Ruth Nolan, is a creative writing professor and former wildland firefighter for the Federal Bureau of Land Management’s California Desert District, and she has had day-to-day experience with the devastation caused by climate change.

Confirmed speakers for this event include:

  • Lucille Lang Day
  • Iris Jamahl Dunkle
  • Terri Glass
  • Tobey Hiller
  • Stephanie Noble
  • Patti Trimble
