Episode 112: Make It New(s): A Reading and Conversation with Jeffrey Brown, Ted Kooser, and Connie Wanek, Sponsored by Copper Canyon Press
(Jeffery Brown, Ted Kooser, Connie Wanek, Michael Wiegers) PBS correspondent Jeffrey Brown, Pulitzer Prize winner Ted Kooser, and Minnesota poet Connie Wanek are masters of narrative, image, and metaphor. Through their poetry they bring forth Ezra Pound’s famous statements: “Make it new” and “Poetry is news that stays news.” This reading and conversation is that rare arch from kitchen-window views to global news, from activities as common as sharing a sandwich and canoeing a remote lake to witnessing and reporting events that grip everyone’s attention.
