Poetry Out Loud - the national poetry recitation competition - has ignited a passion for poetry among high school students across the country. Students are challenged to learn and bring to life an established poetic work, with one winner from each state going on to the national competition.

On March 19th, ten finalists from Vermont high schools will bring their performances to the Vermont PBS studio for the state finals competition - and Vermont PBS will webcast the event live from our studio, beginning at 7 p.m.

Vermont PBS will also broadcast these finals on Thursday, April 9, at 8 p.m.

See great works of poetry come to life and cheer on some talented Vermont students!

Description: 

Screening & discussion of Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies.  A three-part, six-hour documentary directed by award-winning filmmaker Barak Goodman and executive produced by Ken Burns, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee, M.D. This “biography” of cancer covers its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the 20th century to cure, control and conquer cancer. The project matches the epic scale of cancer, reshaping the way the public sees cancer and stripping away some of the fear and misunderstanding that has long surrounded it. The series is a both a riveting historical documentary, an engrossing and intimate vérité film that focuses on current patients, and a scientific report.
