O, Miami Celebrates Poetry for All

A poem for every person is the goal of the annual O, Miami poetry festival. As the festival draws to a close, Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks with founder and organizer Scott Cunningham about some of the festival highlights, including an event that enlists dogs to wear bandanas with a line of Emily Dickinson poetry, and a project that inscribed a passage of poetry on urinals around Miami.
