I spent two days last week distributing a collection of stellar essays and poems called Red Rock Testimony to decision-makers in Washington D.C. With Kirsten Allen, from Torrey House Press, we visited agencies, senators, and congressmen--seeking to create change with our words alone. The 34 writers in this chapbook argue for protecting America’s public lands, for the president to proclaim Bears Ears National Monument, and for Congress to reject the Utah delegation's destructive Public Lands Initiative.
This 88-page chapbook conveys the spiritual, cultural, and scientific values of Utah’s canyon country. For now, it's a limited edition. In a few months, Torrey House Press will publish a trade edition. We've created a permanent website, Red Rock Stories, that invites submissions from all who treasure this canyon country. Please join us in speaking on behalf of the redrock canyons of the Colorado Plateau.
