A World Premiere Kennedy Center Commission
By Jason Williamson

Like many Americans, the Kennedys shared a love for poetry and read it together as a family.

Enjoy the words of Robert Frost, Carl Sandburg, Langston Hughes, Edgar Allan Poe, Gwendolyn Brooks, E. E. Cummings, and others in a special show made for sharing. Age 9 and up.
