Lorna Goodison

In May of this year Lorna Goodison became the Poet Laureate of Jamaica.

In a conversation from December 2014, we talk about how place has influenced her poems – from sunshine and salt to Michigan’s own snowy streets. We talk about Lorna coming to Michigan, her time and friends here and beyond.  We also talk about songs and joy and what is coming next.
