In this open discussion with poet, playwright, and radio host Grace Cavalieri, join us to celebrate Grace Cavalieri’s amazing work presenting poetry on WPFW-FM and Pacifica Radio as well as from the Library of Congress. Cavalieri has interviewed over 2,000 poets over the years, allowing listeners on public radio stations across the country to connect with some of the world’s best writers. We’ll hear excerpts from some of her favorite programs and talk with her about why she does what she does.
