Poetry in America

Apr 6, 2018

Join poet Edward Hirsch, host Elisa New, NBA players Shaquille O’Neal, Pau Gasol, and Shane Battier, and a group of basketball players as they read Hirsch’s “Fast Break” and use basketball to understand poetry–and poetry to understand the game of basketball. Hirsch’s episode will premiere starting this Sunday, April 8. Edward Hirsch was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in poetry in 1985.
