Diane di Prima: A Phone Conference / Poetry Reading / Discussion of Her Life

Kurt Hemmer’s Beat Generation class in Pullman, Washington called Diane di Prima in San Francisco and listened to her ideas about writing & revising, being poor in New York, living as a bohemian woman artist among Beat men, her children, living at Millbrook with Timothy Leary, how to properly use psychedelics, advice for emerging female artists, and read sections from _Dinners and Nightmares_, “Song for Baby-O, Unborn,” and “Rant.”
