Poet Laureate of Davis, CA

Year Title
2022 Poet Laureate of Davis, CA


In 2022, Julia B. Levine was named an Academy of American Poets Laureate Fellow. Levine has created a program for middle school students to express their climate concerns in small groups, listen to scientists from University of California, Davis talk about solutions, and read and write their own poetry in response to climate change. A selection of these poems will be recorded by the teen authors and installed with geo-locating technology along a bike path that Davis youth utilize daily. This Sound River will be available to anyone with a mobile phone on the path. The Design Tech Lab at American River College will assist with Levine’s fellowship project.
