Welcome authors Peter Markus and Robert Fanning as they discuss and celebrate the power of poetry. Award-winning author Peter Markus delivers an uplifting and imaginative chronicle of teaching writing to elementary students in Detroit public schools. With elegies to a brother, sister and father at the core, Robert Fanning's third poetry collection examines what sustains in us in spite of loss. In richly sonic and poignant lyrics, we witness the wilder forces beyond our bastions of safety-of the beauty and devastation that we cannot contain and to which we eventually succumb.
