Is That Too Much to Ask?

Bobbie Louise Hawkins - "As a writer, on paper..." (4'04"). Recorded on June 15, 2010 at the Naropa Performing Arts Center, where Hawkins read with Thalia Field, Ross Gay, Joanne Kyger, and Linh Dinh as part of a Summer Writing Program Faculty Reading. Much more Hawkins, including readings, talks, and panel presentations, at the invaluable Naropa Poetics Audio Archive. Her most recent books are Absolutely Eden and Bijoux. "When you put the importance in the answer and hand it over to someone else, you get stuck with somebody else's answer."
