By J. Bradley Minnick

On this (April 1, 2015) episode of Arts & Letters, we sit down with poet and folklorist Greg Brownderville, who hails from Pumpkin Bend, Arkansas. He is the author of Deep Down in the Delta: Folktales and Poems (Butler Center Books, 2011) and Gust (Northwestern University/TriQuarterly, 2011).

A deep felt sense of place persists throughout much of his work, which incorporates the images, stories, songs and landscape of the Arkansas Delta where he grew up.
