David Meltzer in the Classroom

Last week, poet David Meltzer and his wife Julie came to visit. What’s cooler than a poet visiting to talk about the “Beat” movement in American poetry? Coming in a shirt that says “DownBeat”!

I’ve been reading Beat Thing and will post up some audio clips from the talk (depending on how fancy I can get with this Garage Band!)

It was a transformative experience! And hearing about Kerouac behind “Kerouac” was rewarding in itself… more soon on this talk.
