On February 22 poet and publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti died at age 101. To honor his life and legacy and to celebrate what he loved most – the spoken word – the College of Arts & Letters and Cline Library have launched The Ferlinghetti Project, a public collection of community members reading from his work and the work he edited, published, and inspired.
During the month of March, you’re invited to record a reading of your choice or share a reflection. You can utilize Cline Library’s One Button Studio or go selfie-style with your phone or laptop. Submit your video via Google Doc (100mb limit) or email (25mb limit).
The Ferlinghetti Project will go live in April to coincide with National Poetry Month. To learn more about Ferlinghetti and access his poetry, visit our Lawrence Ferlinghetti guide.
