Poets get to the heart of what we’re thinking and feeling. It’s a new year and we’re going to look back and look ahead with poetry.

Today we’ll hear from Utah Poet Laureate Paisley Rekdal; Logan Poet Laureate Shanan Ballam; and poet and Sonosopher Alex Caldiero. We’ll hear poems they have composed along with works from other poets they have selected.
