United States Poet Laureate and Fairfield local Tracy K. Smith has a new literary project, and this time it's on the airwaves. It’s called "The Slowdown". Every weekday, Smith reads a poem and reflects on the author’s words.
"The Slowdown" is Smith’s way of bringing poetry to more people, and for us to pause during our hectic lives. KALW’s Jenee Darden met up with the Pulitzer-Prize winning author at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco.
Listen to "The Slowdown" on KALW 91.7 FM weekdays at 6 p.m.
