Brenda Hillman reads poems related to climate change from Cascadia (2001), Practical Water (2009), and Seasonal Works with Letters on Fire (2013). She also reads a new sequence of poems titled "The Rosewood Clauses." This reading was originally given with Robert Hass as part of the Climate Change & Poetry Series.


Poets Odilia Galván Rodríguez and Martín Espada give a reading inspired by the anthology Poetry of Resistance: Voices for Social Justice. Mari Herreras moderates a discussion by the poets after introductory poems are read. This reading was given as part of the 2017 Tucson Humanities Festival.
