One of the aspects I love about this reading series is the ability to learn more about the writer and how they move through the world, not only from what they share from the page.
This week’s guest has inspired me for years now—how he moves through the world and makes it a better place with not only his presence but what he does and offers others…
Ian Ramsey will read from his soon-to-be-published poetry manuscript “Hackable Animal,” and take us “around the world from Tokyo to Trinidad to Trujillo and wrestling with the inner dimensions of what it means to be a wild human being in the quickly disrupting/globalizing 21st century. Ecology. Climate Change. Wildfires. Technology. Activism. And lots of bears”.
Join us? Tonight, Sunday, March 28th, at 8pm ET/5pm PST. (Zoom link below.)
