National Poetry Month,
with local poet Terry Stevenson
How did poetry shape the momentous cultural and political events of the 20th Century, from the Beats' attack on the conformity of the '50s to the Aftrican-American poets and women poets of the '60s and '70s? And what is poetry's future in the 21st Century?
