Lee Ann Roripaugh's latest poetry collection "Tsunami vs. the Fukushima 50" is now available with Milkweed Editions! This marks the bittersweet end of season 8 'Dear Mr. President.' Many thanks to all our poets, filmmakers, cast and crew for their vision, and of course, countless thanks to our season producer Claire McGirr for such a remarkable run!
The idea of basing a video on a poem may one day seem as natural and inevitable as the setting of poems to music used to be.

Astonishing, powerful, and hilarious.
