“My dad started reading this poem. I was three. I stopped him. I said, ‘Start over.’ Like, what is this? This is the most beautiful thing I've ever heard in my life! And so we started over, and I stopped him again. I said, ‘I will be a poet. This is for me.’” Tara M. Stringfellow talks with J.T. Ellison about her novel MEMPHIS.
