The culmination of my Academy of American Poets Laureate Fellowship is this climate crisis anthology and the 20 or so readings we are scheduling
to launch it during April, 2020: National Poetry Month. (See below.) You can ask your local independent bookstore to order the book through Ingram,
order it from one of my local independent bookstores, The Book Seller, or purchase it through Indiebound here, or Amazon here.

You can also read a little about my project in the New York Times or on NPR.

For press information and review copy requests, please write to me at mollyfisk@gmail.com.
