Finding Identity Through Poetry, Art, & Nature

“Remember the sky that you were born under, / know each of the star's stories.” So begins the poem Remember, which implores the listener to know their origins, their communion with all things. Poetry, art, and place have the power to transcend generations, and reinforce one's sense of self and connection with others. Join the original author, an award-winning artist, and an educator in conversation as they discuss adapting this poem into a picture book, the connections between poetry and art, and their power to impact readers of any age.
