Local Poet on KXCI

Posted By on Tue, Nov 24, 2009 at 4:32 PM

Jefferson Carter will read from his new book, My Kind of Animal, during KXCI's Poet's Moment. Air times are Wednesday, Nov. 25, at 3 and 10 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 28, at 8 a.m.; Sunday, Nov. 29, at 2 p.m.; and Monday, Nov. 30, at 10 a.m.

My Kind of Animal is Carter's eighth collection and is published by local Chax Press. Carter has read at the 2008 Tucson Poetry Festival and participated in the Tucson Festival of Books.

A book launch takes place from 6 to 9 p.m., Friday, Dec. 4, at Hotel Congress, 311 E. Congress St. A portion of the proceeds from book sales that evening will be donated to the Sky Island Alliance, where Carter volunteers. He explains their work: "Sky Island is an alliance of scientists and environmental activists who protect the flora and fauna of Southern Arizona and northern Sonora. Among their many activities, they close down illegal roads in wilderness areas, try to protect jaguars and ocelots, keep intact the wildlife corridors between the mountain ranges, and generate data and advise government agencies on ways to keep the national forests healthy."
