Two women poets read their poetry. First is Linda Pastan (b. 1932) of Potomac Maryland, author of "Aspects of Eve," "A Perfect Circle of Sun," and "The Five Stages of Grief." This is an edited version of a reading she gave at the Brooklyn Museum in February (1982?). We thank Brooklyn Arts and Culture Association for use of their tape. The second reader is Melanie Kaye/Kantrowitz (b. 1945) who grew up in Brooklyn and now lives in Maine. She is the author of and is reading from her book "We Speak in Code" (sound is very muffled and there is bleed-through during her reading).
