The Pen and The Sword: Lucien Darjeun Meadows discusses his debut collection of poetry, "In the Hands of the River"

In the Hands of the River explores the hollers of West Virginia, Lucien's former home, weaving family Cherokee heritage, queer identity, and an exploration of the poets own body through the mountain landscape. Lucien joins Taya Jae on The Pen and The Sword for an intimate and tangible conversation.

The first time Taya was on the radio was a KVNF pledge drive promo recorded in 1998, she was 5. It went something like this, “I like KVNF because it’s fun to listen to music” she goes on to say, “music is like a dream”.
