Oral History Initiative: On (and With) ANNE WALDMAN

Moderated by poet and scholar JOSHUA KOTIN (author of Utopias of One), this oral history conversation will focus on the communities that have emerged around or intersected with the life and work of poet, performer, activist and relentless force-for-the-good ANNE WALDMAN—including stories about individual poets, friends, and thinkers she’s engaged with as well as such organizations as the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics/Naropa University and the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church.

A brief trailer for the forthcoming documentary about ANNE WALDMAN, “Outrider: The Temporary Autonomous Zone,” will be screened at the outset of the event. Filmmaker ALYSTYRE JULIAN will be present for this special preview.
