Poetry Out Loud
New Jersey is holding its fifth annual Poetry Out Loud! recitation contest at Drumthwacket, the governor's mansion in Princeton, on Thursday, March 18. The winner of the State Finals goes on to represent the Garden State at the national competition in Washington, DC. Producer Christopher Benincasa speaks with Poetry Out Loud's MC Alysia Souder about the impact this program is having on the lives of high school students -- some of whom are discovering poetry for the first time because of it.
