Natalie Diaz wins MacArthur grant

Natalie Diaz MacArthur


We enjoy hearing that past Poetry Show guests are doing well, and receiving a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant qualifies as doing very well indeed.

Natalie Diaz visited the Poetry Show at KUSP in 2013, one of three guest poets that evening. The others were James Baker and Tomas Q. Morin, and all three were on the road to promote new books published by Copper Canyon Press.

To celebrate Natalie’s good fortune, we’re re-posting the podcast from June 9, 2013.
