Find out why New Jersey isn’t just the Garden State – it’s also the Poetry State. We talk to New Jersey natives Maria Mazziotti Gillan, Joe Weil, and three-time poet laureate Robert Pinsky about following in the footsteps of Allen Ginsberg, William Carlos Williams, and Walt Whitman. We visit the Poetry Center in Paterson and "Jersey Voices," a night of poetry at NJPAC.
