A MANIFEST FOR THE MOON

The Lunar Codex uses digital and analog technology to preserve art, books, music, and more, enclosed in time capsules and launched to the Moon. It is a message-in-a-bottle to the future.

Curatorial Notes

This section documents an archive of poetry readings and audio interviews from the long-running program The Poet and the Poem from the Library of Congress. The Witter Bynner Foundation for Poetry and the Humanities Council of Washington, D.C., sponsor this program.

Several U.S. Poets Laureate and several Witter Bynner fellows are included. The show first aired on WPFW-FM radio in Washington, D.C., and currently features on a special podcast as well as on National Public Radio, and features the poets' discussions of craft and sources of inspiration with host Grace Cavalieri.
