On January 2, 2016 poet and author Hakim Bellamy joined us into the studio to read his new children's book, Samuel's Story.  What do you want to be when you grow up? Samuel wrestles with that question as he considers his options. 

Sat. 07/25 6a: Poetry can play a transformative role in our lives. It gives us an opportunity to ask questions and open up to the unknown. Hirshfield shares her love of poetry, her take on beauty, and she treats us to some of her poems. She takes us into the mind of the poet and reminds us that a reader can benefit from a poem without knowing what the poet is thinking. Hirshfield is author of The Beauty: Poems and Ten Windows: How Great Poems Transform the World.
