AL PURDY IN THE COUNTY
I filmed residents of Prince Edward County reading Al Purdy's poems on video in the summer of 2014 as part of my residency at Al's house.
HOW PEDESTRIAN POETRY PROJECT
For over a year and a half I accosted strangers in public and asked them to read poems for me on video. The results were often surprising. I used to have a blog where I kept all the videos and provided explanations of each poet and setting, but it no longer exists. But you can still watch the very rough, hard-to-hear, shaky, charming videos here.
