MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Fire and Rain: Ecopoetry of California, co-edited by Lucille Lang Day and Ruth Nolan, is a powerful new anthology featuring more than 250 poems by 149 contributors, including Ellen Bass, Christopher Buckley, Alison Hawthorne Deming, Camille T. Dungy, Ann Fisher-Wirth, Rebecca Foust, Dana Gioia, Rafael Jesús González, Emily Grosholz, Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman, Jane Hirshfield, Ursula K. Le Guin, Gary Snyder, and David St. John, with a foreword by Dana Gioia and introduction by Jack Foley. Pattiann Rogers, recipient of the John Burroughs Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Nature Poetry, says, “Fire and Rain: Ecopoetry of California”…is not only a beautiful and thorough anthology but an homage to California, its varieties of landscapes, and the amazing poetry it has evoked. Like no other collection in its focus, it presents for the reader experiences of life and personal perspectives on the region while also providing an invaluable resource for teachers of creative writing and literature and the ecology, habitats, and species of the state.” Reading at this event are contributors:
