Join us from the comfort of your living room for Pulitzers in Person: a tribute to the work of legendary poets Ted Kooser & Jean Valentine, featuring Copper Canyon poets Rachel McKibbens, Lisa Olstein, Arthur Sze, and moderated by Washington State Poet Laureate Tod Marshall! Together, they will join in conversation about what makes the work of these two Pulitzer-recognized writers so extraordinary.
This program is part of the Pulitzer Prizes Centennial Campfires Initiative, a joint venture of the Pulitzer Prizes Board and the Federation of State Humanities Councils in celebration of the 2016 centennial of the Prizes. The initiative seeks to illuminate the impact of journalism and the humanities on American life today, to imagine their future and to inspire new generations to consider the values represented by the body of Pulitzer Prize-winning work.
This program is available for viewing either with a Roots Channel subscription or as a standalone purchase.
