This year, the Showcase provides a context for The People’s Poetry Gathering, a festival of over one hundred events celebrating our nation’s oral traditions. This ‘Woodstock for Words’ brings practitioners of a wide range of oral poetries––including cowboys, decimeros and griots––to explore the relationship between popular recitation traditions and contemporary poetry.
