Poetry & Drama • 3 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

This live recording in New York City's Town Hall of some of this country's best poets is intended as a celebration of the poetry published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux, but the celebration extends to the love of poetry as an art. Each reader is introduced at the beginning of his or her segment, helping to familiarize listeners to the voice they are about to hear. The beauty of the performance as a whole is that the readers themselves are poets, and, although they do read their own work, they pay homage to other fine poets by sharing their work, as well. An energetic atmosphere of community comes through this recording. It is a gathering of lovers of language and the power of imagery. R.A.P.
