Description

In our final episode of our mini series "On My Bookshelf," Jules interviews one of the most influential figures in the American arts scene: Dana Gioia. Mr. Gioia has spent his professional life attempting to bring the arts back into the lives of everyday Americans, including as an award-winning poet, serving as the head of the National Endowment for the Arts, and ending his career as the current Poet Laurette of the state of California. He is a man of deep faith and love for the Church, and I was thrilled to speak with him about the necessity of Beauty as a means of drawing others into the love of God.
