Poetry A Shepaug Libraries Program
April 22 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Connecticut State Poet Laureate, Margaret Gibson and local Poet Laureate Emerita, Davyne Verstandig as the two discuss a recently published anthology, Waking Up to the Earth: Connecticut Poets in a Time of Global Climate Crisis- just in time for Earth Day! This poetry anthology includes work by Connecticut poets who write of their relationships 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. Both poets will offer readings from their recent publication and will discuss how poetry and climate change tie together themes of grief, loss, hope, and connection to the natural world surrounding us.
