Bird is the word! Join us for the 13th annual Words for Birds, a celebration and cry for protection of winged relatives for National Poetry Month. Co-hosted by Stone in the Stream/Roca en el Rio, Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, and Deceleration, this year’s event will consist of an online reading in two sessions, one on Saturday, April 24 at 7pm CST and another on Sunday, April 25 at 2pm CST.
Saturday’s lineup will be MC’ed by Deceleration co-editor and ecowriter Marisol Cortez, and features the verbal talents of:
Dyhanara Rios Eddie Vega
Erika Marie Garza Johnson
Ignacio Magaloni Javier Fuentes Vargas Megha Sood
Odilia Galvan Rodriguez
Rita Marie Contreras
Yasmín Parra Codina
…reading live from backyards and parks. Watch both sessions for a lyrical appreciation of the ancient flighted lizards that limn our relation to urban nature.
