Today’s new release is an interview with beloved haiku poet Tom Clausen, filmed at Mann Library on the campus of Cornell University in 2012.
Besides his work as a poet, Tom created the Mann Library Online Poetry resource. He discusses the origins of this project in the interview. He also originated the concept that has become the Book of the Week feature on the Foundation website, posting selected poems from chapbooks on his personal blog beginning in 2010.
