Joe Pacheco on NPR

Our April 7th broadcast today on NPR WGCU was a great success and in my opinion one of the best group poetry programs I’ve ever heard or participated in.

The poets and poetry were superb and the moderating by John Davis was masterful. I recommend you share the link below with your family and friends.
