FLOW (For Love of Water) Presents: "A Fine Canopy" with Alison Swan

FLOW's Dave Dempsey is joined by poet Alison Swan, who will read from "A Fine Canopy" with Q&A to follow. Alison Swan’s collection of poems, "A Fine Canopy", illustrates how the natural world envelops and encloses us with so many beautiful things: crowns of leaves, the ubiquitous blue sky, our luminous moon, and snow. So much snow. An eco-poet whose writing shows her advocacy for natural resources, in this collection Swan calls the reader to witness, appreciate, and sustain this world before it becomes too late. Published in October 2020.
