Had enough of politics yet? (Who’s that in the back who shouted, “No”?)
If so, you might want to tune into the Charlie Rose Show tonight for “A Conversation with Kay Ryan, U.S. Poet Laureate, and Dr. James Billington, Librarian of Congress.” (I made a brief mention of the taping a couple of weeks ago.)
The show can be seen on your local PBS station. Times vary; check your local listings.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did — but even more, I hope inspires many more Americans into a love of poetry.
