Prolific poet and winner of the 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship Award, Anne Waldman is younger than the Beat Generation, but she did know many of its prominent voices. She talks about her life-long friendship with Allen Ginsberg, and their role in founding the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University.
