Tom Weatherly (Nov. 3, 1942 - July 15 , 2014) on PennSound
PennSound has located a rare sound recording of Tom Weathelry, reading in Grand Valley Michigan in July of 1971.
Weatherly reads the complete serial poem "MAUMAU AMERICAN CANTOS" for the first ten minutes of the reading (text here); after that he reads various poems, including “Lady Fox” from Thumprint but nothing else from that book or MAUMAU.
