After last week's debut of poet Vida Cross's book, BRONZEVILLE AT NIGHT: 1949, Liz Blood chatted with Cross about the influences on her work including painter Archibald J. Motley, writer Langston Hughes, and living in Chicago. They discussed bringing writing, music, and painting together, different manifestations of segregation, and the blend of fiction and nonfiction in Cross's poetry.
We're growing our team!
Congratulations to Donald Quist!
