It’s been lots of fun to see so many celebrating literature on Earth Day.
Serena Agusto-Cox of Savvy Verse & Wit has posted several eco-themed poems, honoring both Earth Day as well as National Poetry Month.
Sheila Boneham’s post, “Reading for Earth Day and for Life,” features lists of literature for every reader.
The Florida Department of Education has posted Earth Day reading lists for kids from pre-kindergarten through high school.
In the case of Blair Richmond’s blog, a photo does the job of a thousand words. For all the teens and tweens (and grownups!) out there who like paranormal vampire romances, Blair’s first two Lithia Trilogy novels, Out of Breath and The Ghost Runner, deal with environmentalism, animal rights, conservation, running, Shakespeare — and, of course, there’s a vampire love triangle.
For all you writers out there, here are a few Earth Day writing prompts — one from my own blog, and a great list of prompts from LitBridge.
And, last but not least, Ashland Creek Press is hosting a book giveaway for Earth Day — sign up to receive a free eco-fiction sampler, as well as to be entered to win a free copy of one of the featured eco-friendly books.
Happy Earth Day!
