Catalog Number: 20200417

In this 2020 reading at Rockhurst University for the Midwest Poets Series, Ada Limón talks about her creative process and shares work from her National Book Critics Circle Award-winning collection, The Carrying. While she uses poetry to explore loss and pain—from her own struggles with infertility to the world's devastation from climate change—she also reads praise and love poems—including two new pieces. A 2011 program with Ada Limón is also available in our audio archives.
