Happy Birthday to Anne Waldman

(L-R) Allen Ginsberg, Anne Waldman, Robert Creeley (source)

It's internationally acclaimed poet Anne Waldman's 70th birthday today. For those of you who don't know, Anne Waldman "co-founded with Allen Ginsberg the celebrated Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University, the first Buddhist inspired University in the western hemisphere, in 1974" (click here for source).

We heard Anne read her poem, "Holy 21st Century," at Lowell Celebrates Kerouac in 2012. She was accompanied by Ambrose Bye, and it was inspiring.

Fortunately, you can listen to her read this poem by clicking here.

And here is a 2008 interview you may find educative.

Happy Birthday, Anne!
