Young, curator of literary collections and of the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library at the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL), was NPR’s March NewsPoet. He spent time in the NPR newsroom in Washington, D.C. during All Things Considered on March 30, then composed an original poem reflecting on the day’s news and read it on-air (90.1 WABE locally). Now that’s poetry under pressure!
