This year’s annual Copper Canyon Press holiday celebration—book sale, reading, and party at the Hugo House—will celebrate socially-engaged poetry, with poems that take on climate change, gender justice, issues of labor and class, and life at the U.S-Mexico border.
Elizabeth J. Coleman will travel from New York to read from the groundbreaking anthology of eco-poetry Here: Poems for the Planet; Taneum Bambrick will read from Vantage, winner of the APR/Honickman First Book Award selected by Sharon Olds; and Natalie Scenters-Zapico will read from her critically acclaimed collection Lima::Limon. Hosted by Copper Canyon Press editor Elaina Ellis.
Those who RSVP for a free ticket will be gifted a complimentary book of poetry.
