Pam Houston, Katie Peterson, moderated by Lucille Lang Day

In this intimate conversation moderated by Lucille Lang Day (editor of the new anthology “Fire and Rain: Ecopoetry of California”), memoirist Pam Houston (“Deep Creek”) and poet Katie Peterson (“A Piece of Good News”) discuss the case for optimism and joy in our troubled American landscape. Across ranchland, mountains, borderlands, and deserts, these women will explore how our political discussion is shaped by our land, and how care for our wild spaces can change the way we think about our future.
