TV Segment on Grace Cavalieri Takes Home Two Silver Tellys
Hartford Cable Network strikes Telly silver with their featured segment on Maryland's favorite poet laureate.
Grace Cavalieri’s segment on Harford County TV is officially a smash hit, taking home two silver tellys at the annual Telly Awards— the competition’s top prize. The short was awarded highest honors in two categories: Videography/Cinematography and Television:Documentary. Grace and her poetry appear alongside other award winners and nominees from TV networks like Aljazeera, ESPN, and PBS.
This sort of media recognition is nothing new for the intrepid Grace Cavalieri who won a silver medal from the Corporation of Public Broadcasting in part for her work in her long-running Library of Congress broadcast, The Poet and the Poem.
The segment itself details the work of Grace’s late husband, Kenneth Flynn, a former air force pilot turned found-wood sculptor. During the segment, Grace reads her poem, “Safety” from her book Other Voices, Other Lives (ASP, 2017).
