In this episode, Host editors Claire and Annar, and publisher Joe celebrate National Poetry Month by reading a few poems and discussing how they serve as examples of how each of us as individuals find access, or entry points into poems, and why we love poetry.
The poems we discussed in this episode are:
“Diving Into the Wreck” by Adrienne Rich from Diving Into the Wreck
“Poem for an Antique Korean Fishing Bobber” by Dobby Gibson from Little Glass Planet (Graywolf Press)
“Girls Respond Quickly to a Call from Up High” by Sawako Nakayasu from Some Girls Walk Into the Country They Are From (Wave Books)
For the entire month of April, we are offering 20% off all poetry titles through our website, www.hostpublications.com, and as a special bonus: we’re also handpicking a complimentary Host 88 poetry title with every order we fulfill, all month long! Thanks for celebrating poetry with us, and as always, thanks for listening.
