In his book, Disappearing Ink: Poetry at the End of Print Culture, poet and critic Dana Gioia ponders the future of poetry at a time when traditional outlets for poetry are disappearing. Gioia, who was named California Poet Laureate in 2015, also reads from his 2001 collection of poems, Interrogations at Noon, which won the 2002 American Book Award. A program with Dana Gioia from 1994 and a show where he discusses his work with the NEA for Operation Homecoming are available in our audio archives.
