Beth Spencer on Vagabondage

Award winning novelist, poet and nonfiction writer Beth Spencer reads from and talks about her latest poetry book,Vagabondage.  In this candid conversation we discuss her own journey, the idea of “leaving no trace”, about aging, displacement, homelessness, her writing processes, about giving up and then re-finding herself as a writer, verisimilitude and the poetic form, the value (and pain) of solitude and attention, about time’s cyclical and mosaic quality and why poetry works so well to describe that, and much more.
