In a recent segment of KCUR-FM’s Up to Date, Host Steve Kraske talked with Kennedy about her latest book of poetry for children, Poems to Learn by Heart, and why she chose to put some of her personal remembrances in the collection. Kraske also asked her about the prospects of her becoming the U.S. ambassador to Japan.
