Today on Your Call: What role does poetry play in your life?
On today's Your Call we’ll honor "Poem in Your Pocket Day" and National Poetry Month by speaking with poets. How can poetry inspire, motivate, inform, and transform individuals and society? If you’ve only recently discovered poetry, what opened your eyes to it? And if you never read poetry, what questions do you have about it? Join us at 10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. What poem or poet is your favorite, and why? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
