EXCLUSIVE: Watch Linda Hogan and Alberto Ríos Discuss Their Poems of the American West
From Season Three of Poetry in America
Eight new half-hour episodes of Poetry in America will begin airing on public television stations nationwide (check local listings) and on the World Channel starting in January 2022 and continuing through the spring.
The series will also be available to stream on pbs.org, poetryinamerica.
Two poems, by Linda Hogan and Alberto Ríos, follow wolves, jackrabbits, and other animals across the harsh Great Plains and Sonoran Desert. Both poets join wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin, director Chris Eyre, Native American scholars Philip Deloria and Stephanie Fitzgerald, and students from New Mexico to discuss how the poems call back difficult histories of human migration in the American west.
Support for Poetry in America is provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Dalio Philanthropies, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Poetry Foundation, Deborah Hayes Stone and Max Stone. Season 3 is distributed to PBS stations nationwide by PBS Plus, with Seasons 1 & 2 distributed nationally by American Public Television.
