Molly Tenenbaum - Portrait

Poems about ventriloquism – Molly Tenenbaum

Molly Tenenbaum‘s newest work is inspired by her father and grandfather’s stints as professional ventriloquists. In this podcast, you’ll hear snippets of her interview with 2007 Jack Straw Writers Program curator Matt Briggs and highlights from her live reading at the Jack Straw May Reading Series.

In recognition of Molly’s free-spirited word-smithing and her deep connections to Seattle’s poetry and folk music communities, Jack Straw Productions and Matt Briggs have nominated her for Seattle’s 2008 Poet Populist. Poets are nominated by various Seattle arts organizations, and the public is invited to vote for their favorite poet here.

Music by Tamara Friedman, produced as part of the Jack Straw Artist Support Program.
