The author of five books of poetry, including, Hammerlock, Tim Seibles is known for using pop culture--everything from TV shows and cartoons to movies--to get at the heart of our humanness. He has been described by Reginald McKnight as a poet who “won’t let you go ‘til he has taken you into the center of American politics and pop culture, the minds of birds, the Tao te Ching, your body, your so-called color, your so-called race.”  Seibles discusses his work and reads poems from several of his books.
