5th Annual Ecopoetry Festival at the John Muir House

May 12 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The Fifth Annual Ecopoetry Festival will feature two poet laureates of Central Valley
cities, along with special guests.  Indigo Moor, current laureate of Sacramento, and
Gillian Wegener, former laureate of Modesto, will read along with Alhambra students,
and other poets who have a long personal association with Martinez.  The theme will be
the evolution of ecological stewardship and poetry’s contribution to it. To root that
evolution, we will also express the essence of place, specifically Martinez, where John
Muir settled as an adult.
