About this Blog: From the Catbird Seat

A blog celebrating poetry, the Poet Laureate, and the wealth of literary resources at the Library of Congress, as well as engaging with current topics in literature. In March 2023, this blog was merged into “Bookmarked: Celebrating Contemporary Books & Writers at the Library,” which continued in its mission.
