Poetry Reading from Barbara Harris Leonhard

In anticipation of the release of her debut poetry collection, Three-Penny Memories: A Poetic Memoir, hear poet Barbara Harris Leonhard talk about her book cover and give some background to the book, and listen to a moving reading of the opening poem, ‘Excavating the Heart Wall of Grief.’
