Coming Soon: Studs Terkel in Conversation with American Poets

Coming soon from The WFMT Radio network, a new series called Studs Terkel in Conversation with American Poets.

Celebrate National Poetry Month with a trio of short radio programs featuring some of America’s greatest 20th century poets in conversation with Studs Terkel. These programs explore how poetry channels voices from the past, propels fantastic voyages and dives deep into memory, childhood and the wild “backyards” of life. Robert Polito, president of the Poetry Foundation, guides this tour which features excerpts from Terkel’s archival talks with Allen Ginsberg, Gwendolyn Brooks, James Baldwin, Howard Nemerov, Elma Stuckey and John Ciardi.

They’ll be posted here for listening and purchasing later this week!
