Former U.S. Poet Laureate Kay Ryan is known for her ability to leave a deep imprint with very few words, artfully weaving subtlety, wit and gravity. The Marin County-based poet, who was awarded a MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" last month, joined Michael Krasny in the studio in October. We replay portions of the interview as part of our special Thanksgiving Day programming.
