The Moon is Still as Bright—Readings of Lunar Poetry

SUPPORT
Arizona

Poetry about the Moon spans ancient and contemporary cultures across the world. Poet and science writer Christopher Cokinos, UA Associate Professor of English, and poet Julie Swarstad Johnson, Senior Library Specialist at the UA Poetry Center, present an evening of readings of lunar poetry.

You’ll hear English verse folktales, indigenous creation myths, haiku and work by English and American poets, from Shelley to Sexton, from Hughes to Hayden. Johnson and Cokinos are editing an anthology, Beyond Earth’s Edge: The Poetry of Spaceflight, and will provide a special preview of poems from the book that respond to the Apollo era.
