Poet Anne Waldman, Force of Nature

If you have any doubt about the dynamism of poetry, make a point to experience the wild words and deft delivery of a live reading by activist poet Anne Waldman.

The author of more than 40 books, founder of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, and organizer of the St. Mark’s Poetry Project gave the final Poets Out Loud (POL) performance of the academic year on April 15 to full house in Fordham-Lincoln Center’s 12th-floor Lounge/Corrigan Center. The performer shared the podium with four local teenagers and aspiring poets from Girls Write Now and Cristo Rey School. The teens are participants in POL’s high school outreach program.
