The Earth Is Not Flat

Mar 27, 2013

Poet Katharine Coles has pushed the boundaries of her known world since she was a child. Three years ago, she left the comfort of the Wasatch Front to journey farther than she ever had before. She spent a month living at Palmer Station in Antarctica where she hoped to explore science, life and nature. Coles joins us on Thursday to talk about her trip and the poems it inspired. They meditate on Antarctica’s bafflingly vast land- and seascapes, on the continent’s animal life, and on the people, both historic and contemporary, she encountered there.

Lindenberg has written a new book of poetry, an extended elegy really, to Arnold. As poets, words and conversation united Arnold and Lindenberg, and she says that writing the poems in her new book helped her both continue the conversation and let it go. Tuesday, Lindenberg joins us to talk about her poems and the man they memorialize.
