Writer/poet Tracy K. Smith

On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek talks to Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Tracy K. Smith.  The National Book Award finalist talks about the evolution of her writing and a common misconception about poetry.  Gary also talks to one of the artistic directors of a Chicago festival that’s shining a light on cutting edge forms of theatre.  Physical Festival returns for a third year.  We’ll revisit a segment on an art exhibit at Fermilab. WDCB’s Leslie Keros will preview the Otis Rush tribute taking place at this year’s Chicago Blues Fest.  And the Dueling Critics will review a play making its Chicago premiere.

Gary caught up with award winning writer and poet Tracy K. Smith
