Local writer/poet Don Ogden reads from his new book Bad Atmosphere – A Collection of Poetry & Prose on the Climate Crisis
Tuesday, January 20 at 7 pm in the Woodbury Room at the Jones Library. (The snow date for this program will be Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 7 pm.)
Published by Amherst-based Levellers Press, Bad Atmosphere – A Collection of Poetry & Prose on the Climate Crisis was published in November 2014. The author, local writer/poet Don Ogden, is producer and co-host of The Enviro Show on WXOJ-LP/Valley Free Radio. The book is the culmination of decades’ worth of writing by Ogden focusing on various aspects of climate change that moved him to put into words feelings and thoughts evoked by “the greatest crisis of our time”. Ogden, known by many as d.o., has been active in environmental issues for most of his life. His poetry and commentaries have appeared in a wide variety of publications and on national and local radio.
Joining the celebration are local singer/songwriters Tom Neilson and Lynn Waldron, as well as Susan Theberge of Climate Action Now! MA, who will speak about that local group’s efforts in addressing the climate crisis.
