Ada Limón: The Images of Poetry

National Book Critics Circle Award winner Ada Limón joins us to present a powerful new poetry collection, The Hurting Kind. Limón charts the interconnectedness between humans and non-humans, the living and their ancestors. Her work constructs joyfully accessible images in poetry, such as this picture of her mother’s love: ‘My whole life I’ve been under her raincoat, thinking it’s somehow a marvel that I never got wet.’ She speaks to Marjorie Lotfi.
