Poetry

Interviewed by:

Catalog Number: 20170407

In ancient Rome, an Augur was thought to be a herald or one who could interpret the natural signs as an indication of divine approval or disapproval of proposed actions. This public poetry reading, recorded in Washington D.C. and sponsored by the Association of Literary Scholars, Critics, and Writers, features a group of women poets, all over the age of 60, sharing their work, and views on this post-election, America. Eleanor Wilner (shown), Alice Friman, Alicia Ostriker, Michelle Boisseau, Terese Svoboda, Kate Daniels, Robin Becker, and Rosellen Brown read from work that is both poignant and political in The Augurs: Women of an Age.
