Debra Marquart, Distinguished Professor and Iowa Poet Laureate will read from her in-progress book-length poem, Leave it in the Ground, about the oil boom in her home state of North Dakota. Created in collaboration with visual artist Tom Rice, she will share images of his large-scale drawings that depict the visual narrative of her words. Together, the book and art will examine the true cost of oil extraction to the planet.
