The Writer’s Almanac: A Poem A Day

Part of maintaining the home is establishing a rhythm, and there are few really pleasant rhythms in day to day life aside from morning coffee and a good hard work out at the gym. We always found The Writer’s Almanac a perfect way to end the day at home, as we used to listen to it each night at 9pm in WNYC, but they don’t run it anymore, so we find it online, and listen to it right here.

The Writer’s Almanac is a five minute radio show that Garrison Keillor does each day of the week, year round. It is an ingenious short pick-me-up consisting of one poem read aloud, preceded by the literary news and events from that day in history. It is always ended by the same 9 words: “Be well, do good work, and keep in touch.” MGR
