In celebration of National Poetry Month From the Catbird Seat would like to invite all of our readers to join us on April 30th, noon to 1 p.m. EDT, for a free, online program, “Bringing Poetry to the Public.” Our very own Rob Casper will welcome special guests Mike Melia (PBS NewsHour Senior Broadcast Producer) and Craig Teicher (Director of Digital Operations at Publisher’s Weekly and poetry critic for National Public Radio) for a spirited conversation about how the news media promotes poetry. Most of the Poetry and Literature Center’s literary programming takes place on-site, so this is a rare opportunity for anyone who can’t readily visit the Library of Congress to participate in one of our events. Further details about the event follow below.
We look forward to closing out National Poetry Month with you!
