The CJSR Edition: The Poetry of Alberta Show

They say that poetry is the prose of the heavens. On this episode of the CJSR Edition, we bring poetry back to earth. CJSR's News Director Matt Hirji speaks with Anna Marie Sewell about how poetry can illuminate what it is to be an Edmontonian. Then, in the second part of the program, we travel inside the walls of the Bowden Institution — a prison located in central Alberta — to hear a collection of poems and short stories written and read by the inmates that were recorded in 2001.
