Continuing guests from Chapman University’s Tabula Poetica reading series, Ada Limón stops by Writers’ Block to read from her collection Bright Dead Things, as well as sneak peeks of her upcoming book. She and Mike talk about reoccurring themes in her work, what it means for a poem to know that it’s a poem, and the importance of grieving together.


Note: This interview was recorded the morning of October 2nd, which means Ada and Mike talk about the Las Vegas shooting right up top.
