A special project for our anniversary season, "75 at 75" invites authors to listen to a recording from our vast archive and write a personal response. In most instances, these recordings are being made available to the general public for the very first time. Colm Tóibín on Elizabeth Bishop, Brian Boyd on Vladimir Nabokov, Rick Moody on W. G. Sebald, A. L. Kennedy on E. E. Cummings, Richard Ford on Eudora Welty, Cynthia Ozick on W. H. Auden, Donna Tartt on Carson McCullers, Maxine Hong Kingston on Grace Paley, Helen Vendler on Wallace Stevens, Yiyun Li on William Trevor and Tom Stoppard on Harold Pinter—these are just some of the exciting pairs of recording-responses coming to Poetry Center Online in the next year.
