The Writer's Almanac
The Writer's Almanac is "a daily radio program of poetry and history" hosted by Lake Wobegon's very own Garrison Keillor. If your local public radio station broadcasts the five-minute nugget (check the web site for listings) -- well, then you're lucky. Tune in for a brief dose of history and a poem read by Mr. Keillor. It's a daily joy. Past poems have included James Wright's "Lying in a Hammock at William Duffy's Farm," Ted Hughes' "Moony Art," and the work of Anne Sexton, among others.
