Derek Sheffield and Ellen Bass are poets of the fine details of place—attentive to the way both the human world and the natural world are inseparable. They will read from their latest poetry collections Not for Luck (Sheffield) and Indigo (Bass) which center on ecopoetry, including themes of environmental and social justice.
