Rosie’s Paradox

One night Rosie’s father, busy working, told Rosie, then 9, to stop distracting him with her questions. She should write them all down, he said. Rosie returned with about 50 of the most fundamental human questions. Three years later, her father is still answering them. Producer Stephanie Foo tells the story. (12 minutes)

Matt Salyer is working on a collection of poems that’s coming out later this year called "Ravage and Snare."
