Creating connections through the arts and across cultures

Talks at Readings

In 2006 after Sightlines: A Poet's Diary was published, I gave a series of talks in California, Illinois, and New Mexico. In each talk I included stories, commentary, music, and poetry from Sightlines. Click on the titles for the transcripts that give a flavor of the talks I gave in these locations and occasions.
