WORDS ON A WIRE: Daniel Grandbois & Irene Vilar

Daniel & Ben talk with writer Daniel Grandbois and his wife, literary agent Irene Vilar.  Grandbois talks about working outside of any genre category, and why his work is inspired by both children's literature and scientific papers.  Grandbois and Vilar also talk about the "Unlucky Lucky" series of books, the latest of which is called "Unlucky Lucky Tales."

This week's Poem of the Week was written and read by Abigail Carl, "Walking in Colonia Rubio," which reflects upon her time living among a Mennonite community in Seminole, Texas.

And in this week's Poetic License, Benjamin Alire Saenz reflects on the choices we make, and how they are more limited than may imagine.
