In collaboration with this moveable feast of words, the MBTA/MBCR has authorized poetry to be read by poets on Train(s) No. 1105; 1109 and 1113 between Boston and Salem:

There will be three poetry readers assigned to each train.  

Salem Mayor Kimberley Driscoll said she's delighted to have the Poetry Festival back in Salem. 

"We are pleased that Mass Poetry has promoted the use of public transportation, and we are particularly delighted to have the spotlight on the commuter rail from Boston to Salem through the wonderful experience of having poetry readings on the trains,” the mayor said.
