The audio series From the Vault celebrates National Poetry Month by paying tribute to the life and work of award-winning poet, essayist, feminist and intellectual Adrienne Rich, who influenced generation of women throughout The Feminist Movement. Adrienne Rich died in March.
We'll hear Rich read from her collections Snapshots of a Daughter-in-Law (1963) and Necessities of Life (1966) from a live in studio appearance on the series Talk with a New Bedford Whaler in 1972 at WBAI in New York.
In 1973, again at WBAI with producer Mimi Wiesbord Anderson, Adrienne Rich reads selections from The Will to Change (1971).
A decade later in 1983 at KPFK in Los Angeles, Rich speaks with poet Eloise Klein Healey about her life's work in a wonderful recording called Women's Words.
