Main stage - Saturday afternoon - Lucille Clifton

Lucille Clifton , one of the matriarchs of American poetry, is not really a 'grand matriarch' at all. She is so open, so down to earth. I have had the pleasure of hearing her at the three Dodge events I have attended and multiple times at those events. Usually in a "Poets on Poetry" session and then she always takes part in the Poetry Sampler and again on the Main stage in Saturday evening lineup.  I don't tire of listening to Lucille. Even when she has repeated a poem I have heard before, it is a "new" reading. Something new comes from hearing at a different time and place.
"After blues"
"... my father was so sure"
"what I know is"
"In 1958"
"You are nearly light enough"
"Mataooha" - she who is called Pocahontas
"Aunt Jemima"
"September song"
