Clip | 5m 42s

State of the Arts recently caught up with poet Gregory Pardlo at a reading he gave at Villanova University. At age 46, Pardlo won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, joining the ranks of Sylvia Plath, William Carlos Williams, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Robert Frost. Now, he seems to be in perpetual travel mode – giving readings anywhere from Spain to Sri Lanka to his hometown in Willingboro, NJ.
