Carolyn Kizer.  Annie Finch.  Digging Our Poetic Roots.

WordTemple host Katherine Hastings opens the program with a reading by Pulitzer Prize in Poetry winner Carolyn Kizer that took place on International Women's Day, March 8, in 2007 at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts.  Since Kizer is no longer giving public readings, this is a wonderful opportunity to hear one of America's most important contemporary poets. Following Kizer, award-winning poet Annie Finch, the author of six books of poetry, reads from her collection Calendars. Finally, Katherine Hastings reminds listeners that they are invited to participate in Digging Our Poetic Roots, her poet laureate project culminating in an anthology of Sonoma County poets.

  • Walt Whitman - July 20, 2014
    During the month when America celebrates its independence, Katherine Hastings celebrates one of America's most famous poets, Walt Whitman. You'll hear a wide selection of poems from Leaves of Grass as well as some music inspired by Whitman's poetry. Born on Long Island, New York in 1819, Whitman was a major innovative voice in world literature, creating a new kind of poetry that confused the majority of the literary world at the time but remains unsurpassed in its passion and scope. Ralph Waldo Emerson called the first edition of Leaves of Grass "... the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom America has yet contributed." And it still remains "as contemporary as tomorrow."
