Visiting Poet Brenda Hillman

Brenda Hillman finished off the SPLAB 2011 Visiting Poets Series in fine fashion November 11 and 12 with a brilliant talk on Innovation and Activism in Poetry Friday the 11th (Veterans Day), a workshop that left at least one participant “buzzing all day” and a reading featuring her brilliant new work. One long-time stalwart of the local poetry scene said it was “the best reading I have ever seen her give.”

So, the audio of the reading is here. (Paul Nelson’s intro here.) (Post-reading Q & A here.) Video here: Intro, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. Thank you Ra’anan David for the video.

The interview she did with Paul Nelson is here.

Read about the confrontation she & her husband had with the SWAT team called out to the UC-Berkeley Occupy Rally here.
