LARB Radio Hour: Susan Kaiser Greenland Mindful Games; Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, & 9/11; Gerard Manley Hopkins

December 16, 2016

Author Susan Kaiser Greenland talks with Laurie Winer about her new best-selling book "Mindful Games: Sharing Mindfulness and Meditation with Children, Teens, and Families." The question is raised: Can mindful meditation be the antidote to the toxicity of Trump? Also, in recognition of Bob Dylan's Nobel Prize in literature, LARB's Gustavo Turner drops by to recommend two works of literature: Bob Dylan's "'Love and Theft'" and Leonard Cohen's "Ten New Songs," great albums overlooked because they were released on (or around) 9/11/01. The show closes with Gerard Manley Hopkins' poem "Spring and Fall."
