Description

Description:  Poetry in America, a new twelve-part series airing on PBS this Spring, aims to bring communities together through poetry. Each episode features a poem read by a public figure, with a conversation led by Elisa New, series host and director and the Powell M. On June 4 we will screen one episode from this series which features The New Colossus, Emma Lazarus’s iconic sonnet of immigration. The program will feature singer-songwriter Regina Spektor, activist and founder of the United We Dream Foundation Cristina Jiménez, President of the American Federation of Teachers Randi Weingarten, financier and philanthropist David Rubenstein, and poet Duy Doan. After the screening, guests will be joined by Leah Reis-Dennis, the co-founder of Verse Video Education and producer of Poetry in America and others who contributed to the series for an in-depth conversation which will take guests behind-the-scenes to learn more about the making of this exciting series.
