In this program, the well-known American poet, Marianne Moore, reads from her work before an audience at the Poetry Center of the 92nd St. YM-YWHA in New York City in 1965. Unfortunately, the entire recording of Moore's reading was unavailable, and this program includes only the second half. It begins with Moore reading her poem "Giraffe" and is followed by a question-and-answer session. Tape ends on "...thank you for not being bored." Fade out on applause.
