Diane di Prima: A Phone Conference / Poetry Reading and Discussion of Her Life (2000)

As tribute to Diane di Prima, Kurt Hemmer has posted this audio on Vimeo. His Beat Generation class in Pullman, Washington called 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.”
