rural life

Gerald Stern reads poems from throughout his career, filled with witty quips about rural Pennsylvania, his Ukrainian heritage, historical essays on rhyme, and getting fired from a teaching position at Temple University.

In this question and answer session at Rincon High School, Byrd Baylor discusses her inspirations, writing process, and experience as a writer, in addition to her connection to nature, the land, and ceremonies. She also reads from I'm in Charge of Celebrations (1986).
