Inside Poet's House with Bill Murray

Here's a great article about Poet's House, which counts the Cherry Pie chapbooks among its treasures. 

Poet's House now has over 50,000 works of poetry.

On the Poet's House website, you can find treasures such as links to a video of Bill Murray reading poems of Lorine Niedecker and Emily Dickinson to constructions workers taking a break.  Priceless, the rapt look on the workers' faces during the Dickinson reading  Equally priceless, Murray's ability to see the audience is as important as the poems (watch the video all the way to the end.).
