Join poet Kay Cosgrove for a virtual webinar on Wednesday, April 21 at 7:30 p.m.

The emphasis on the natural world is an ever-present theme for American poets and painters. Through the eyes of these poets and painters, we discover the captivating beauty of the American landscape. Kay Cosgrove takes us through a journey into America’s earliest poets from the 19th century, where landscape was used to emphasize American land and language, to the 20th century where the ecopoetic movement arose. Through the understanding of poets and artists, we learn just how extraordinary land is, and why we need to preserve it on the canvas and the page.
