The Washington Post alerted me to this wonderful-sounding D.C. Poetry Tour. Download the podcast and get moving; the 2-hour walking tour is narrated by Elizabeth Alexander and starts at the Library of Congress and ends at Dupont Circle: “you’ll find poems thematically related to the city and its neighborhoods along with a fascinating and all too often hidden cultural history.”
The tour was created by the Poetry Foundation, and there’s also a tour of Chicago
