Shorties (Barbara Kingsolver on Her New Poetry Collection, A Reconsideration of the Replacements' All Shook Down Album, and more)

How To Fly by Barbara Kingsolver

Barbara Kingsolver discussed her new poetry collection How To Fly with Morning Edition.

"Writing novels has always been my day job, but poetry is the thing that I always did just because I loved it. So it feels more personal to me when I write a poem," she says. "I'm really not thinking about anyone reading it. I just kind of put it in a drawer."

The Pacific Island Inlander reconsidered the Replacements' last studio album All Shook Down 30 years after its release.
