Omniscient Tape Recorder: Lawrence Ferlinghetti Edition
On October 19, 1966, The Poetry Project hosted Lawrence Ferlinghetti for our first Wednesday Night Reading, to an audience of 1,200 (with 500 turned away at the door). This year Ferlinghetti turns 100, and were thrilled to join a nationwide week of Ferlinghetti reverie with a special edition of Omniscient Tape Recorder at The Poetry Project. Well be sharing previously unreleased recordings of Ferlinghetti at The Poetry Project along with readings and performances from Steve Dalachinsky, John S. Hall, Janet Hamill, Filip Marinovich, Lee Ranaldo, Bob Rosenthal, and others TBA.

The Poetry Projects vast collection, recently processed by the Library of Congress, is a goldmine of potential knowledge and inspiration. Spanning the entirety of the Projects existence, it includes over 4,000 hours of audio, much of it untapped as a scholarly resource. Started during Judah Rubins curation of the Monday Night Series in 2016, Omniscient Tape Recorder is a series in which participants choose particularly rich poems and discuss their historical impact, the texture and grain of the works recitation, and the impact of these readings, poems, and people on the landscape of poetry and art. The goal of this series is both to showcase The Poetry Projects history and to encourage engagement with the organizations archival collection.
