The Sonoran Desert: A Literary Field Guide is a groundbreaking book that melds art and science. Both literary anthology and hands-on field guide, it captures the stunning biodiversity of the world’s most verdant desert through words and images. Join Chris Cokinos & Eric Magrane, editors and authors, to discuss their collaboration and their timeless subject: The Sonoran Desert.

More than fifty poets and writers–including Christopher Cokinos, Alison Hawthorne Deming, Ken Lamberton, Eric Magrane, Jane Miller, Gary Paul Nabhan, Alberto Ríos, Ofelia Zepeda, and many others—have composed responses to key species of this striking desert.

Each creative contribution is joined by an illustration by award-winning artist Paul Mirocha and scientific information about the creature or plant authored by the book’s editors.

Presentations at 12 PM and 2 PM.
