Poets for Science (video here)

Jane Hirshfield & Meryl Natchez Reading, Thursday November 19 @7pm PST

Osher Marin JCC & Marin Poetry Center present two poets to read their work. They will talk about their experiences as writers during a time of crisis, the importance of community, and their shared sense of reverence for the natural world. Jane Hirshfield is an honored and distinguished poet, and was recently elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. Meryl Natchez is a poet, translator, and reviewer, and chair of the Marin Poetry Center. They both have new books, Ledger from Knopf for Jane, and Catwalk from Longship Press for Meryl. You can purchase by clicking on the links above (they make lovely gifts).
