Performance: Poem Jam - California Fire & Water

Thursday, 12/10/2020

Virtual Library

United States

This monthly poetry reading features poet and editor Molly Fisk and writers in her acclaimed new book, California Fire & Water: A Climate Crisis Anthology. To help Californians face uncertainty and express their personal responses to the climate crisis, Molly Fisk sent poet-teachers from California Poets in the Schools throughout the state to teach five-session workshops on the climate crisis. California Fire & Water gathers work from these students, as well as from adult poets. The authors hope to prompt discussion and action on behalf of the planet and to provide solace for those suffering losses. Kim Shuck, the current Poet Laureate of San Francisco, will introduce the program.
