Off the Shelf- Episode 13: Green is the Orator with Sarah Gridley

Green is the Orator

It is my great pleasure to present episode 13 of Off the Shelf with my first returning guest, poet and assistant professor of English Sarah Gridley. Sarah's poetry has been published in a long list of prestigious journals and poetry reviews, including the Chicago Review, Crazyhorse, the Kenyon Review Online, New American Writing and Slope.

Sarah joined me in November, 2008 for episode 4 of this program, in which we discussed her book Weather Eye Open, which was published by the University of California Press in 2005. The press clearly couldn't get enough of Sarah's work, and earlier this year published her latest volume in their New Poetry series. The book is entitled Green is the Orator, and will be the topic of our conversation for episode 13.
