Favorite Poem Project

The Favorite Poem Project is dedicated to celebrating, documenting and encouraging poetry’s role in our lives. Robert Pinsky, the 39th Poet Laureate of the United States, founded the Favorite Poem Project shortly after the Library of Congress appointed him to the post in 1997. Roberto Mighty was commissioned to produce and direct several new films for the series in 2017-2018.
