This weekend, we’re featuring an avalanche of memoirs, histories, photo collections and analyses that explore 9/11 and its aftermath.

Poets, of course, also have sought to make sense of the attacks. The NewsHour on PBS interviewed two poets, Billy Collins and Nancy Mercado, and asked them to read works related to 9/11.
