Take Heart: A Conversation in Poetry

In 2011, the Maine State Library partnered with the State's Poet Laureate and the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance on an initiative, Take Heart: A Conversation in Poetry.

The program featured a weekly poem published by a Maine poet that included a brief introduction provided by Wesley McNair. An archive of those poems is included below.
