A Sense of Place: Around the World in 12 Poems

Me and Mary and the world

I’m super excited about today’s show; my first ever in-studio guest co-host Mary Kovaleski Byrnes and I have chosen some of our favorite travel and place-centered poems, including some of our own poetry about the places we’ve traveled to.
