Presented with Autumn House Press
Tuesday, October 11
Queer Nature is a groundbreaking anthology of more than 200 LGBTQIA+ poets writing about nature. Tuesday’s program, presented with Pittsburgh publisher Autumn House Press, features readings from 10 contributing poets and a discussion with the collection’s editor Michael Walsh.
In the collection and in the evening’s readings, you will find love poems, meditations on queer bodies, laments for the world we are destroying, poems of survival, and calls for environmental justice.
The 200 poets represent gifted and renowned contemporary artists situated next to masterful queer poets of the past including Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, Frank O’Hara, Audre Lorde, Thom Gunn, Adrienne Rich, and more.
The anthology is a beautiful expansion to the canon of nature poetry and a loving field guide to life right now. We hope you’ll join our moving and celebratory evening.
