Poetry and Climate: A Book Launch, Reading, and Panel

April 16 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Free

Join the Climate Museum in celebrating the official launch of To Leave for Our Own Country, the debut poetry collection from John Linstrom, the Climate Museum’s Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Climate Humanities and Social Justice.

John will read a selection of poems from his new book, alongside readings by outstanding fellow poets Louis Bury, Mariposa Fernández, and Kendra Sullivan, all of whom have written about climate change in a genre that, on the whole, has been slow to explore it. After the readings, Sonya Posmentier, Associate Professor of English at NYU, will moderate a discussion and Q&A with the poets, exploring the role of poetry in activating civic engagement with climate change and social justice. Light refreshments will be served, and books will be available for purchase and signing.

Cosponsors:
NYU Arts & Science, Department of English
NYU Arts & Science, Organism for Poetic Research
CUNY Graduate Center, Center for the Humanities
