Description: Allison Adelle Hedge Coke hosts the Honoring the Sandhill Crane Migration Literary Retreat on the Platte Valley, naming participating writers as Literary Crane Fellows annually. Sandhill Cranes have migrated to this spring apex for sixty million years, thus, traditionally, numerous indigenous eco-philosophies and languages, including written, were justly influenced. The regional apex numbers 600,000 arriving birds. Each panelist will speak toward and share their work as a Crane Fellow in this unique regional miracle.

Presenters: Allison Hedge Coke, Sherwin Bitsui, Cristina Eisenberg, Wang Ping, Travis Hedge Coke, Laura Tohe
