The Source of the Question is Found in Poetry

To Peter Caccavari, poetry is in part getting to the source of the question. In this Authors of Union podcast, Caccavari reads from his first chapbook of poetry, Minor Loss of Fidelity, coming soon from Finishing Line Press.

Poet Tyrone Williams describes the chapbook this way, a testament to resisting despair, how to live with, how to come to love, loss of life, the losses of the body. In these poems, there is comfort in the every day, and more importantly, in the natural world where there are always reminders, always remainders, of what has almost—but not quite—disappeared.”

Caccavari is also the Associate Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness and Title IX Coordinator for Union Institute & University.

Listen today to the poems of Peter Caccavari and a discussion of his journey as a writer. The host for the interview-style podcast is Dr. Linwood Rumney, professor in Union’s General Education Program, poet, and author.
