About this show

Wandering? Wondering? Here is an opportunity to be a part of history! Howl! Fifty Years Later: A Seminar is a day-long event featuring authors who contributed to The Poem that Changed America: Howl! Fifty Years Later, edited by Ginsberg scholar and activist Jason Shinder, who will preside over the event. Expect performances, talks, and a ton of audience participation with Amiri Baraka, Alicia Ostriker, Robert Polito, David Gates, Bob Rosenthal, Gordon Ball, Kurt Brown. The Event starts at 1:00 P.M. with a four-hour discussion with the authors of the book The Poem that Changed America: Howl! Fifty Years Later. At 5:00 P.M. there will be "A Public Howl." Edwin Torres conducts the audience/performers (it's all one!) in the 23 minute magnum opus. Come armed with your favorite lines or work spontaneously like the rest of us. At 6:00 P.M. there is a "Howl Speakout." Share your stories, poems, memories: How did the poem that changed America change you? At 8:00 P.M. the legendary Amiri Baraka gives a full-tilt performance with his hometown band, Newark's Blue Ark.
