Sandra Tsing Loh for a conversation on the environment’s necessity for our artistic figures.
Panelists include poet/naturalist Elizabeth Bradfield, whose recent book Towards Antarctica offers a unique view of The Last Continent through photographs and prose, and science journalist/playwright Alanna Mitchell, whose play Sea Sick, tells the tale of her 13 oceanic journeys in 3 years to observe the vast chemical changes at the hand of man and why that matters. (Sea Sick comes to The Edye at The Broad Stage in April 2021).
The Poetics of Climate Change will also feature readings by critically acclaimed poet Natalie Diaz, member of the Gila River Indian Tribe and born and raised in the Fort Mojave Indian Village in Needles, California on the banks of the Colorado River; 2014 Los Angeles Poet Laureate Luis J. Rodriguez, founding editor of Tia Chucha Press and co-founder/president of Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural & Bookstore in the San Fernando Valley; and Poet Laureate of Utah Paisley Rekdal.

Red Hen Press Poetry Hour is part of The Broad Stage at Home, original monthly programming via the online portal that will broadcast through December.
