Library of Congress & Poetry

This past March Poet Laureate Ted Kooser sat down to have a conversation with John Prine at the Library of Congress. You can see the Prine & Kooser show HERE.

Gotta say, it was an unexpected pleasure to see the two disparate elements of poetry creators together on one stage. Prine sings a song, they chat, Kooser reads.

Just discovered the archive of Internet-accessible video at the Library of Congress and am really happy to say it's become part of my daily browse for quality entertainment.

Here's the webcast home page.

From that link you can find music, lectures on science, religion and literature, even a lecture on the History of Household Technology can be streamed.
