The Takoma Park Reading — The Video

The video of the March 16 reading at the Takoma Park Community Center is now available.  Just Google “Third Thursday Poetry (March 16, 2017).”  The video is almost an hour long.  As I noted in the first post, Mary Beth Hatem introduces the program, and reads the slightly modified John O’Donohue poem in the process.  Nancy Arbuthnot begins to read from her poetry at about the 8:00 minute mark.  I come on at the 29:00 minute mark and read until about the 51:00 minute mark.  Mary Beth comes back and ends the program with the George Saunders poem.  I hope that you’ll have a chance to view the video and will enjoy it when you see it.

  1. Hi Tom, Sorry I haven’t commented before this, as I’ve been a bit busy lately, but I did get a chance to watch the video last night. I enjoyed it, especially your reading of your signature poem (and the title of your book), “Food for a Journey.” For those who haven’t read it, it’s a tale about a novice priest, Tom Gannon, who volunteers to be a chaplain in a hospital for two weeks. Among those patients he ministers to is the most famous football coach in America. The coach’s journey has a poignant ending. A great poem. I also enjoyed Mary Beth Hatem’s reading of George Saunders’ poem, “Trump L’Oeil.” For those who would like to watch the YouTube video, here’s a link: Thanks for sharing, Tom, and I look forward to your next book of poetry!
