Event Navigation

Janet Ruth will be reading poetry from her recent book Feathered Dreams. Many birders in SE Arizona volunteered with Janet’s grassland bird studies at the Audubon Research Ranch in Elgin, AZ. This free reading will take place in the Historic Y conference room down the hall from the Tucson Audubon Nature Shop at 300 E. University Blvd. Books are available to buy, cash or check only please.

From the Author: Here, there, and everywhere we each experience a connection with Nature. In Feathered Dreams, Janet Ruth—ornithologist, poet, artist, and international birder—shares her love of birds through poem, story, and image. She relies beautifully on her scientist’s eye and artist’s heart to recreate the magic we can encounter when we stop to watch and listen. Dedicated to 2018—The Year of the Bird—the collection introduces us to birds familiar and exotic, from grasshopper sparrows (her beloved research subjects), ravens, and owls, to resplendent quetzals and red-capped manakins. The poet’s voice envelops the reader in humor and awe, sadness and joy. With scenes drawn from a Pennsylvania childhood, a New Mexico neighborhood, or a tropical rainforest, the poet explores themes of loss, dreams, and stories both intimate and far-reaching about the birds with whom we share the landscape. This collection of avian treasures is a “wingèd paean of gratitude for the wonders, the messengers that are birds.” Feathered dreams drift on the wind of poems and memories in this love song to birds, to life.
