Join us as hosts Elizabeth Scanlon, Steven Kleinman and Thalia Geiger engage in one of the liveliest discussions of current poetry you’ll find on the web.

Today on the show, we talk about first books from favorite poets, and how they’re both magic and revealing. Then, we chat with Chessy Normile, winner of the 2020 APR/Honickman First Book Prize. Her first book of poems, Great Exodus, Great Wall, Great Party, was chosen by our guest judge, Li-Young Lee. The book will be published in September, 2020.
