Noguchi Talks | Poet Kay Ryan reading from her new Book 'Erratic Facts' and talking about rocks

'Erratic' is a geological term of art for boulders carried and deposited by glaciers--in manners and places so surprising as to have helped give rise to science itself. Kay Ryan's erratic facts, it may follow, are not stray pieces of trivia but displaced chunks of reality: momentous mysteries, with a rock-like solidity, capable of inspiring a sublimely productive wonder.

 

Kay Ryan is a former United States Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner who lives and writes in Northern California.
