Award winning poet and activist DJ Savarese has a new poetry collection called Swoon. Savarese is autistic and non-speaking- but he is a powerful communicator. Talk of Iowa host Charity Nebbe speaks with Savarese about his poetry and his activism.
Plus teacher and co-founder of the 1619 Freedom School Sheritta Stokes discusses the Black Men Read program in her school district, and folk musician Greg Brown reflects on his long career ahead of a two-day series of retirement performances at the Englert Theatre in Iowa City.
