Join The New Yorker‘s Hilton Als as he continues his residency exploring the ways poets and poetry reflect contemporary American life.

He’ll be joined by award-winning poet Carolyn Forché, author of What You Have Heard Is True, a new memoir of her life of witness and resistance around the world, and Native American writer Natalie Diaz, who’s written When My Brother Was an Aztec and the upcoming Postcolonial Love Poem.

Co-presented by the Academy of American Poets.
