WordSpace says
WordSpace has become known for presenting such icons as John Waters and Laurie Anderson. Anne is on that same level of accomplishment.
Anne Waldman has been a force in the American literary scene since the 1960’s. As well as being a poet of remarkable power and an electrifying performer, she has been involved in shaping the way young poets are taught in America, and in the joining of poetry with the music scene. Her political activism has also served as a model of engagement within the artistic community.
