Grace Cavalieri's interviews and book reviews have appeared in various journals including The American Poetry Review. Her original "Poet and the Poem" series aired on public radio in 1977, and again in 1997 -- "The Poet and the Poem from the Library of Congress" is an outgrowth of that show. Approximately ten episodes are produced each season, and a number of these are being added to this site. Ms. Cavalieri also has 13 books of poetry and several produced plays to her credit. She holds the Brodighera Poetry Award, a Paterson Poetry Prize, and a CPB Silver Medal, among other awards. Her recent book, Water on the Sun, is on the Pen American Center's "Best Books" list.
