The program, "The Reader, the Writer and the Muse," includes literary readings, discussion themes and poetry programs using books, videos and audio tapes.

The free program will begin next fall and continue for two years.

"Reading and Discussion" programs will examine philosophical, literary and historical themes.

Participants will receive selected books to read on topics that include women's autobiographies, the 1920s and '30s, ethics, the Civil War and images of romantic love.

"Voices and Visions" will examine the lives and poetry of three poets. Videos made for public television will be used. Poetry experts will guide the interpretation of poets.

"Poets in Person" will examine the lives and works of contemporary American poets. Audio tapes will be used.

Noontime discussions of poets will be held at several work sites.
