Anne Waldman‘s (70th) birthday today. We direct you to some of our earlier Anne Waldman birthday posts – here, here, here and here
Here is Anne at the Academy of American Poets in 2013, discoursing on “Reading and Writing Long Poems”
Here’s Anne from November last year (with her son, Ambrose Bye) performing at Lake Forest College (in the context of the William Burroughs Centennial). She begins with some comments on Burroughs (including a reading of his “Cold Lost Marbles“), before launching into some selections from her own work, (Gossamurmur, Manatee/Humanity), concluding with the recently-published Jaguar Harmonics, (a text inspired, to a large degree by Burroughs and Allen’s seminal Yage Letters)
[Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman, New York City, 1996]
– Happy Birthday, Anne!
