10/23/14 Poet Koon Woon; The NYC People’s Climate March

This week, we bring you two dynamic segments:

First, Tara Dorabji hosts a live interview with poet Koon Woon who will be honored at the American Book Award ceremony this Sunday in San Francisco. Koon Woon is a poet who has struggled with schizophrenia and survived homelessness, crediting poetry to keeping him afloat. His whose most recent book of poetry Water Chasing Water won the PEN poetry prize and the American Book Award.

Then, we bring you coverage of the historic People’s Climate March, which happened in New York City last month. 400,000 people came from around the country and around the world to take to the streets while the UN held a special climate summit. Frontline communities led the march under the banner “Frontlines of the Crisis, Forefront of Change“. We bring you different sounds, including fiery chants, touching testimonies on the mic, and exclusive interviews from the streets. Thanks to Danny Kim with WBAI Asia Pacific Forum and guest contributor Diana Cabcabin for their contributions to this week’s segment.

With host Ellen Choy.
