Story | Apr 2, 2010 | 3:56 PMElise Paschen has a knack for getting poetry into the hands of people who might not know they need it. Nearly 10 years ago, while still the executive director of the Poetry Society of America, she paired with Naperville-based Sourcebooks to create “Poetry Speaks,” an anthology including recordings of notable poets reading their works so that readers could listen to the words as well as read them. In 2005, Paschen launched "Poetry Speaks to Children," aimed at attracting young readers to poems. It, too, was a success. This month Paschen sets out to expose poetry to another hard-to-get audience: teenagers.
