From 2005-2007, Patricia Clark was the poet laureate of Grand Rapids. Now, she's a poet-in-residence and professor in the Department of Writing at Grand Valley State University.

Clark is also the author of five volumes of poetry, including her most recent work titled The Canopy.

Listen above to hear writer John Freeman's review of the collection.  

John Freeman publishes poetry under the name "Cal Freeman." He’s the author of the book, Brother of Leaving, and the chapbook, Heard Among the Windbreak.  His newest book, Fight Songs, is out on paperback.

Support for arts and culture coverage comes in part from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
