Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Burning Deck Press

An anthology of readings by eight poets at the 2001 event


Amaris Cuchanski introduces the newest PennSound podcast in the series, now numbering 23 episodes. Nick DeFina created this 20-minute audio selection from the five-volume set of recordings made at Brown University at the May 2001 celebration of (then) forty years of Burning Deck Press publishing of books, chapbooks and pamphlets, by, of course, Rosmarie and Keith Waldrop. The entire recording has its own page at PennSound.We hope this excerpt entices you to listen to the whole, itself an aptly remarkable testimony to the range, longevity and generous persistence of the Waldrops in Providence. The Waldrops, of course, are no stranger to Jacket: we’ve published reviews, video clips, and (among many other items) Anne Dewey’s essay on Olsonian poetics in Rosmarie’s work.
