katylederer

In her poetry volume, THE HEAVEN SENT LEAF, Katy Lederer reflects on her work for a Wall Street hedge fund. ¬†While there, she wrote poems that meditate on the spiritual costs that enter into the emotional balance sheet. Sea Change Co-Host Francesca Rheannon opened by asking Katy Lederer what it was like to be a poet while toiling on Wall Street during the biggest speculative bubble in its history–and whether she had had any sense of its impending collapse.
