Stateside: Monday, Dec. 19, 2022

Today on Stateside, the year in books. We caught up with poet Keith Taylor on his three favorite reads from Michigan writers this past year. Then, we revisited our conversation with Detroit writer Desiree Cooper, author of Nothing Special, an intergenerational story for kids that was selected as a Top Ten Children's Book of 2022 by the New York Public Library. Plus, a chat with Pulitzer Prize winner Diane Seuss, a Kalamazoo poet who we first spoke with in the spring.
