A Conversation With U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith

Mark Bogacz for NHPR

U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith was awarded the Hall-Kenyon Prize in American Poetry at the Currier Museum in Manchester on Wednesday, December 12.

The event featured a reading by Smith from her newest collection of poetry, Wade in the Water, and a conversation with NHPR's Peter Biello about her work and time as Poet Laureate.

Smith also took questions from the audience during the event. 

Here is the full recording of Smith's reading (introduced by Wes McNair, one of the prize's founders)  and her interview with Peter Biello. 

Christina joined the Civics 101 team in 2021. Previously, she worked on The Exchange, NHPR's flagship live news talk program, where she produced shows on topics including healthcare, social services, politics, and breaking news. She grew up all over the country, but considers New Hampshire her home base.
