DPR Celebrates National Poetry Month in April

Mar 22, 2019

Join us on Thursdays in April at 9 AM on WSDL, 90.7 for a series of lectures by distinguished poet, Sue Ellen Thompson, on three emminent poets: Jane Kenyon, Robert Frost, and Jack Gilbert.

Sue Ellen Thompson, a distinguished poet in her own right, has published five books of poetry, served as editor of the 2005 edition of the Autumn House Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry and is the recipient of numerous awards including nomination for the Pulitzer Prize. Her poems have been read a number of times on National Public Radio’s “The Writer’s Almanac.”

All four of the programs in this series are produced by Delmarva Public Radio with the cooperation of the Talbot County Free Library in Easton, Maryland and The Talbot County Arts Council which funded the original lecture series on which this program is based. All of the lectures were recorded in the Frederic Douglass room of the Talbot County Free Library before a live audience.
