We talk with W. S. Merwin, 17th U.S. Poet Laureate, about writing, poetry, memory and life. He reads a selection from his latest book of verse, The Shadow of Sirius, which won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize. Merwin concludes Houston’s celebration of National Poetry Month and this year’s Margarett Root Brown Reading Series -- presented by Inprint -- with a live reading and conversation at the Alley Theatre.

W.S. Merwin talks with Bob Stevenson.
