    The entire reading and conversation is at our website: Robert Hass has published many books of poetry including Field Guide and Sun Under Wood as well as a book of essays on poetry, Twentieth Century Pleasures. In his role as United States Poet Laureate, Robert Hass spent two years battling American illiteracy, armed with the mantra, "imagination makes communities." He crisscrossed the country speaking at Rotary Club meetings, raising money to organize conferences such as Watershed, which brought together noted novelists, poets, and storytellers to talk about writing, nature, and community.
