The Library of Congress has named Ada Limón as the 24th Poet Laureate of the U.S

Host John Birge welcomes 2022 Poet Laureate, Ada Limόn to talk about how poetry amplifies gratitude.

John Birge hosts a contemporary celebration of gratitude with classical music and stories of Thanksgiving. Special guest Ada Limόn (new US Poet Laureate) joins the table to read her poems and talk about how poetry amplifies gratitude.

As Limón travels around the country in her role as Poet Laureate, she is sharing two things she believes about poetry: It gives us a way to "reclaim our humanity," and it can help repair our relationship with the planet.

Limón is the first female U.S. poet laureate of Latino and Mexican American heritage.
