Wojahn Poem Featured in “We the Poets” Celebration of American Archives Month

October 22, 2014

English Professor David Wojahn was one of eight poets commissioned by the National Archives, in partnership with the Academy of American Poets, to write a poem inspired by any record in possession of the National Archives.

Wojahn was videotaped reading his poem,  “Catawba Cotton Mill, 1908,” in front of the National Archives Building in Washington, DC. His reading can be viewed on the National Archives YouTube channel or read online on the National Archives’ Prologue: Pieces of History blog on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays during October, American Archives Month.
