Event Details

Join Gemini Ink for an evening with the Gemini Ink 2023 Recipient of the Award for Literary Excellence Jenny Browne, and award-winning poet, essayist, and editor Camille T. Dungy. These two contemporary poets at the top of their craft will discuss how their place-based writing addresses the increasingly complicated relationships humans have to the environment, whether man-made or wild.

This discussion will examine the role of the literary arts in addressing an ever-changing environment. How do we use writing to bring attention to our planet’s ecological crisis while exploring the intricate connection between humans and nature? How do we deepen our relationship to the earth and celebrate the wonder of the natural world? Don’t miss an opportunity to spend time with two thought-provoking literary voices!

The evening will include an audience Q&A and a book signing and reception following the author talk. The event takes place in the Margarite B. Parker Chapel at Trinity University.

This event is co-sponsored by Trinity University’s Humanities Collective.
