Poet Tracy K. Smith, winner of the 2002 Cave Canem Prize for her first collection The Body's Question, reads from her 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning third bookLife on Mars, at Rockhurst University's Midwest Poets Series. She discusses how science fiction, the reality of God, and the death of her father inspired her to explore the outer limits of space and the abyss, in poetry that critics say present images transformed into the space of possibility.
