Masters of verse in a small, beautiful room


In her free time, Lori helps manage Rosanne Cash’s website — newly (and beautifully) relaunched. When she heard Cash was coming to the Library of Congress to talk with the U.S. poet laureate,¬†Natasha Trethewey, we had to go.¬†The best parts came when the two compared notes on writing and editing. (I’m a sucker for when showing beats telling.) Steps from the Library’s main reading hall, the room was ornate but small and colonial by federal scales, holding fewer than a hundred people. I felt huge feelings for my city and what tucks away in welcome corners, there in the small room.
