April 28 holds quite a bit of significance for literary folks.
Harper Lee and Terry Pratchett were both born on it, and it’s also National Great Poetry Reading Day.
So fittingly, NPR shared an interview today with poet Leah Naomi Green, who won last year’s Walt Whitman Award and has just published her first book in connection with the honor.
Green hosted NPR’s Tom Vitale, before the coronavirus lockdown began, to discuss her life, her poetry, and, specifically, her new collection of poems, titled The More Extravagant Feast.
