Poet Maggie Smith

Maggie Smith is a poet and writer whose talent gained notoriety when her 2016 poem “Good Bones” went viral across the world. She’s written several books of poetry. Her latest, called Goldenrod, comes out this summer. Her essay collection Keep Moving: Notes on Loss, Creativity, and Change was released last year in the middle of a global pandemic and became a national bestseller.

Maggie joins host Hanif Abdurraqib to discuss how her family stayed close during the pandemic, homemade mac 'n' cheese, jigsaw puzzles, napping in hammocks and inheriting your parents' record collection.
