With the release of her new book, Self-Portrait, I invited Elisabeth Horan back on the show to talk about this interesting melding of the Life of Frida Kahlo and Elizabeth's personal story. Jorge Montero Calderon joins us as well from Costa Rica. He is the translator for this bilingual book of poetry.
I sat down with writer Ayaz Pirani to discuss his new book "Kabir's Jacket Has A Thousand Pockets". He shares how his global background informs his work as well as the traditions he grew up with. Join me for this great conversation with this wonderful Poet!
Today is our official 1 year Birthday!! We are so grateful to our listeners, supporters, cheerleaders, and snack providers-you have helped make this such a fun journey! Today we welcome poet and editor Elisabeth Horan. Her work sheds light on issues surrounding mental illness and more specifically in her debut collection Bad Mommy Stay Mommy, her experience of post-partum depression. Her openness to address such a sensitive topic using poetry-which can be both raw and tender at the same time-is inspiring and offers hope, survival, and the opportunity for others to find courage to tell their own stories.
Poet Kind returns for season 2(!), introduces a new feature, and shares copious amounts of useless information. The best part? Poet Jason B. Crawford reads his beautiful poem, I Will Not Make Pretty of this Death.
