Live Poet Society
The Live Poet Society

The Live Poet Society is all about discussing literature and reading samples live, on-air. Your host Hattie Rensberry is not qualified to analyze poetry or otherwise, but some of her guests may be. Others just love the written word and reading it aloud. So sit back and enjoy a snarky refresher on English class favorites and worldly works.
