Poet Allison Cobb presents Green-Wood, her book-length work of ecopoetry that employs research on Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery. She will discuss how the long poem and multigenre writing embody “the networks in which we are enmeshed: from the particle of smog out of China that settles deep in the lungs of a Californian to the piece of plastic from World War II found in the belly of an albatross chick 60 years later.” Introduction by Poets House Program Director Paolo Javier.
