A conversation with Ann Bracken about her memoir-in-verse, The Altar of Innocence; Jonathan Jensen of the Baltimore Mandolin Orchestra, and short fiction from Eric D GoodmanThe Altar of Innocence, is a poetry collection. It’s also a memoir. Through verse, Bracken travels back to her own childhood to explore a hidden truth at the core of her 1960’s suburban upbringing - her mother’s struggle with depression and alcoholism. It’s a story marked by despair, but also by compassion and, ultimately, hope. Ann Bracken joins producer Aaron Henkin in studio.
