Reading Envy 221: Joint Poetry Readalong

Chris and Emily of the Book Cougars join me for discussion part 1 of our joint readalong - When the Light of the World was Subdued, Our Songs Came Through: A Norton Anthology of Native Nations Poetry edited by Joy Harjo et al. I also recorded the group discussion some of the Reading Envy Readers had, so I've included the majority of that discussion as well. It makes the episode slightly longer than usual, but I figure if you were in on discussing this amazing anthology, you'd likely be in for both discussions. Some people really took on the challenge to try poetry, and I know some readers are still working on it. Stay tuned to the Book Cougars where part 2 of our joint readalong, Braiding Sweetgrass, will post June 8th.
