Videos of Last Month's Ring of Bone Celebration

By Harriet Staff

The City Lights blog has posted a wealth of video footage from last month's celebration of Lew Welch's Ring of Bone, which we reported on here. From the blog:

Last month Gary Snyder, Joanne Kyger, David Meltzer, Peter Coyote, Jerry Martien, Steve Sanfield, Tom Killion, and Huey Lewis celebrated the release of the new edition of Ring of Bone, the pivotal work of Beat-era icon, and close friend of Snyder’s, Lew Welch. Many, many thanks to Litseen for documenting the evening!

And for a taste of the night's event, here's this month's Harriet contributor Joanne Kyger (who, incidentally, will be reading at the Poetry Foundation on Friday, September 14th as part of the Harriet reading series). Enjoy!
