WORDS ON A WIRE: Dana Gioia

DANA GIOIA is the current Poet Laureate for the State of California. He joins us on this program to tell us how his mixed background (Italian & Mexican) inspired his works, and why he believes poetry must be accessible to all, not just academics and other poets. Gioia's latest collection is 99 POEMS: NEW & SELECTED. http://danagioia.com/
