Catalog Number(s): 20200918; 20200417

Interview Year(s): 2020

In this pre-Covid 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, racism and fire’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 archive.
