Poets and artists included in the Grazing the Fire Poetry book have been invited to show their work and read during the "Sacrificial Lands" show at the Carnegie Center in Fort Collins, Colorado. Originally planned for April 11, 2020 the show and readings have been postponed to December 7 to 11, 2020 due to Corona Virus impacts in the U.S. I will be reading my poem "Can Old Ranchers Save the New West."
Additionally, the book is included in a spring 2020 course at Colorado State University on nature and science writing. It is the only poetry book included in the class. The book also received a positive review from Hannah McBride.
This year, proceeds from sales of the poetry book along with a grant obtained by editor Maria Fernandez-Gimenez helped bring seven Native American students to the Society for Range Management Meeting held in Denver Colorado February 16-20. Proceeds from book sales continue to support the travel scholarship fund for indigenous, international, and low resource students to attend the annual meeting.
