Janet Ruth, N.M. poet, ornithologist, artist and international birder shares her love of birds through poems and reads from her new book.
Janet Ruth—Corrales, NM poet, ornithologist, artist, and international birder—will share her love of birds through poems. She will read from her new book—Feathered Dreams: celebrating birds in poems, stories & images. With a scientist’s eye and an artist’s heart, her poems capture the magic that happens when we stop to look and listen. Dedicated to 2018, The Year of the Bird, Janet’s book introduces us to birds familiar and exotic. With scenes drawn from a Pennsylvania childhood, a New Mexico neighborhood, or a tropical rainforest, Janet explores themes of loss, dreams, and stories both intimate and far-reaching about the birds that share our landscapes.
