brings Favorite Poems to Winter Olympics
Robert Pinsky, a CAS professor, former U.S. poet laureate, and
creator of the Favorite Poem Project, will participate in the
cultural events opening the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics.
He will lead a favorite poem reading with Olympic athletes and
other dignitaries on February 15.
Pinsky began the Favorite Poem Project when he was poet laureate
as a way of getting people more involved with poetry. Americans
were asked to submit their favorite poem, along with an explanation
of why it was so important to them. To date, more than 18,000
submissions from people ages 4 to 99 and from every state in
the union have been received. Strong initial response allowed
Pinsky to expand the project's scope with a video series, where
selected contributors read their favorite poem. "Robert
deeply believes that poetry is a vocal art and meant to be read
aloud, and the videos are at the heart of what we've created,"
says Maggie Dietz, director of the Favorite Poem Project.
