Author, poet and social activist Susan Griffin sees that we are in somewhat of a box, and that we need the visionary power of art to help us find our way out. "I think artists can go to a level of vision that can often save us from a situation which seems to have no solution whatsoever." As Griffin talks about the power of art and tells her own story, she addresses some of the most pressing issues of the day, including the erosion of our civil liberties, the war on terrorism, politics and the environment.

Susan Griffin has won dozens of awards for her work as poet, feminine writer, playwright and filmmaker.
She is the author of more that twenty books, including:
