Imagine A New Way (Conversation + Q&A)

Pádraig Ó Tuama, host of On Being’s “Poetry Unbound” podcast, moderates a conversation with poets Martín Espada, Carolyn Forché and Vievee Francis on how poetry helps us imagine a future beyond combative discourse and conflict, how it is a witness to present troubles, an opening of dialogue across boundaries, a humanizer of the objectified "other" and an act of the imagination regarding what might be possible. After the pre-recorded conversation, the poets engage in live Q&A with the Festival audience.
