Poet Maggie Smith Publishes New Collection, 'Goldenrod'

Maggie Smith
Maggie Smith

August seems like a good time to take up some poetry. The days are long and hot, and poetry helps us appreciate the rhythms of life and the world around us.

Especially when Maggie Smith is the poet, joining us with her new collection, Goldenrod.

The publishers identify the collection as a celebration of "the beauty and messiness of life."

JX co-producer and newscaster Angela Decker, herself a poet, takes up the interviewing reins.
