SAL/on air is a literary podcast featuring the best author talks from over thirty years of Seattle Arts & Lectures’ programming.
When Lucie Brock-Broido, poet of the witching hour, sadly passed away in March 2018, we released audio of her reading “Infinite Riches in the Smallest Room,” a title that’s an apt description of her entire body of work.
In our latest episode of SAL/on air, we are delighted to share her SAL reading in its entirety, which took place on April 2015 at Chihuly Garden and Glass. At the time of Brock-Broido’s visit, she had produced four astonishing collections of poetry: A Hunger, The Master Letters, Trouble in Mind, and Stay, Illusion, a finalist for the National Book Award and the National Books Critics Circle Award.
“You have harnessed yourself ridiculously to this world,” she read, words that ring true hearing her now.
