5 - Patti Digh has a series for "poetry wednesday" and this time features Naomi Shehab Nye reading a poem at the Dodge Poetry Festival. I was in the audience when this was recorded.
The Dodge is a biannual festival and although it was scheduled for 2010, word from the Dodge Foundation was that it would not be held. Alas the hue and cry of poetry lovers around rose and they have reconsidered. It will be held in Newark, NJ with details still to be provided. But it will be held in 2010. I plan on being there.
Will you join me for this festival of words?
