J. Scott Brownlee Interviewed at Chicago Review of Books

Chicago Review of Books talks with Tree Light author J. Scott Brownlee about his new chapbook, On the Occasion of the Last Old Camp Meeting in Llano County, championing marginalized voices, and the role of music in his poetry.

In the interview, Brownlee says "the right tonal register and music may be the toughest thing for a young poet to discover," and he gives valuable insight into how music informs his poetry, including offering a soundtrack to his chapbook featuring songs by Jason Isbell, Alison Krauss, and Sharon Van Etten, among others.
