      Editor Dawn Davis (Bon Appétit) Reads Edna St. Vincent Millay - Interesting People Reading Poetry

      In this episode, Bon Appétit Editor-in-Chief Dawn Davis reads “Sonnet 171” by Edna St. Vincent Millay. Davis joined Bon Appétit in November 2020 following a long career in book publishing. Through her visionary work at Simon & Schuster and HarperCollins, Davis oversaw the publication of numerous influential best sellers — from “The Pursuit of Happyness” by Chris Gardner to “The Known World” by Edward P. Jones.  Edna St. Vincent Millay was an American poet born in 1892. She became wildly popular during her lifetime — known for her passionate readings and bold social views — and achieved a special mastery over the sonnet.   “Sonnet 171” by Edna St. Vincent Millay appears in the volume Collected Poems, published by Harper Perennial Modern Classics.  Keep up with Dawn Davis on Instagram, and at bonappetit.com.  In honor of Mother’s Day, Bon Appétit asked best-selling author and poet Kwame Alexander to call upon a dozen fellow writers for a verse on how their lives — and their cooking — now mirror their mothers'. Alexander then assembled lines from each poet into one crowdsourced community poem, featuring the voices of Lorna Goodison, Erika Sánchez, Van G. Garrett, Georgia Heard, Reuben Jackson, Deanna Nikaido and many more. Click here to read “The Ceremony of Giving.” We feature one short listener poem at the end of every episode.

      Ashley M. Jones and Sidney Clifton in Conversation - The Poetry Magazine Podcast

      One thing Ashley M. Jones knows to be absolutely true is that her work is made possible by the poetry and spirit of Lucille Clifton. This week, Jones speaks with Sidney Clifton, one of Lucille Clifton’s daughters. Sidney Clifton is the President of the Clifton House, a new endeavour to transform her childhood home in Baltimore into a gathering place for writers and artists. They speak about mothers, their impenetrable connection to family, and how important it is to honor our journeys, no matter how winding they might be. Jones says, “It was unreal for me to get to spend time with Sidney, and what a joy to also get to invite Ms. Clifton’s poems into the room to join the conversation. What a celebration, indeed.”
