Barb Murray and Mike Luce will once again be co-facilitating these conversations from the radio podcasts of Krista Tippett’s “On Being” online project. We will be hosting them the first and third Sundays of each month.

This Sunday’s conversation will be based on an interview with Tracy K. Smith, the 22nd United States Poet Laureate and the director of Princeton University’s creative writing program. Her conversation is entitled, “Love is a Language/Few Practice, But All, Or Near All, Speak.” She states: “What are the areas where I either am already perpetuating something that is part of what I envision as the problem, or what are the imagined spaces I can enter into where I have to get uncomfortably close to that problem? That’s where something really, I think, interesting starts to happen.”

We will meet in the Memorial Room at 12:30. Feel free to bring your lunch. Listen to or read the transcript prior to the gathering and bring your reflections. Here is the link for this particular interview.
