While the Emily Dickinson poetry marathon is not a marathon in the traditional sense, it does test the endurance, fortitude, and preparedness of all its participants. Over a seven day period, 14 hours in all, participants will read every one of the enigmatic 19th-century poet’s 1,789 poems in the order prescribed by R.W. Franklin’s The Poems of Emily Dickinson.
Accomplished singer-songwriter Carmen Nickerson and pianist Kostia Efimov provide an intimate, acoustic set as part of the No Studios unplugged series.
At approximately 42 minutes into the set, Nickerson pauses to acknowledge the date – September 11th – and pulls out a sheet of paper. The poem she reads is Rose Solar’s “Meditation for my Country.”
Grace Cavalieri’s new podcast is off to a strong start. This week’s guest is professor Jeffrey Lamar Coleman, editor of “Words of Protest, Words of Freedom: Poetry of the American Civil Rights Movement and Era.”
