In case you, like me, missed Sylvia Vardell’s fantastic series of clips from the ALA Poetry Blast (organized and hosted by Marilyn Singer and Barbara Genco), I’m posting links here. She shared the text of Marilyn’s lovely introduction for each poet along with a brief video clip to give you a taste of the work presented. Brilliant!
The first three poets featured are:
Stephanie Calmenson – reading from Rosie—A Visiting Dog’s Story
Kristine O’Connell George – reading from Emma Dilemma
Joyce Sidman – reading from Dark Emperor
What a treat to hear poets read their own work. If you haven’t already, be sure to visit Sylvia’s blog to read, watch, and listen. Enjoy!
Thank you, Marilyn and Barbara, for this wonderful event, and Sylvia, for highlighting it and sharing clips for those of us unable to attend.
P.S. I have no idea why I can’t remove the italics from the text above that should not be italicized!
P.P.S. The Poetry Friday Roundup is with Mary Lee at A Year of Reading. Go! Read! Love!
