Event Description 

Co-sponsored by the Yale English Department

In conjunction with the Schlesinger Visiting Writers Series

As United States Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky founded the Favorite Poem Project, in which thousands of Americans — of varying backgrounds, of all ages, and from every state — shared their favorite poems. The project’s videos, giving voice to the American audience for poetry, demonstrate that, contrary to stereotype, poetry has a vigorous presence in the American cultural landscape. The anthology Americans’ Favorite Poems, which includes letters from project participants, is in its 18th printing.
