Sat 2:00 PM

Duration: 01:00

Description Works such as The Traitor Baru Cormorant, Cormorant Run, Blackbirds, Rose Lemberg’s Birdverse stories, and the Black Feathersanthology use the imagery, characterization, presence, and beauty of birds to explore issues of environmentalism, social violence, and empathy with the other.
