You may have heard that April is National Poetry Month. Bill Moyers is another one who has be an enthusiastic promoter of the art poetry. How well I remember being enthralled by his interviews with poets and then hearing them read their works in the PBS documentary, "The Language of Life," and later "Fooling with Words." These programs both took place at the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival. I was so very appreciative of Moyers bringing these events to the living rooms of America by way of the broadcast media. Moyers has also hosted numerous poets on his television broadcasts. Bill Moyers website, Moyers & Company, has posted "Poets in Performance" which features a wonderful array of poets from past programs reading their works.
I highly recommend going to his site to hear these works : Poets in Performance | BillMoyers.com
