today, times three!

October 21, 2020

Today, Wednesday, October 21, 2020, is a big day for poetry. Here are links to three terrific virtual events that should be enormously inspiring (times are Pacific):

At 12:30pm, U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo reads and discusses her work as part of the October 19-23 celebration, Always Indigenous: Fifty Years of the Chief Seattle Club.

At 5:00pm, Dear America Town Hall —Real Patriotism: The Art of Activism and Protest features readings and discussion by Sherwin Bitsui, Fenton Johnson, Aimee Nezhukumatathil and Debra Marquart, facilitated by Terrain.org editor-in-chief Simmons Buntin.

At 7:30pm, Town Hall Seattle presents Kathleen Flenniken in conversation with fellow poet Sharon Bryan.

Enjoy!

Since 2016, more than 175 writers, artists, scientists, and political and community leaders have offered their impassioned Letters to America in Terrain.org. These are now collected — with 50 new letters — in the book Dear America: Letters of Hope, Habitat, Defiance, and Democracy.

On Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22, 2020, at 5:00pm Pacific, you can celebrate the launch of the book and the first of a new Dear America Virtual Town Hall event series. The event features Alison Hawthorne Deming, Naomi Shihab Nye, Robin Wall Kimmerer, and Ellen Bass, and is moderated by Terrain.org editor-in-chief Simmons Buntin. The event is free but pre-registration is required.
