George Stanley at the Kelly Writers House
introduced and interviewed by Ron Silliman
October 23, 2003.

"Poetry means (a) I'm going to die - and (b) this notebook will be read by someone who will see how lacking I am - unless I destroy it - & I can't do that - that would be worse than keeping it - that would mean thinking of it."--George Stanley
The reading and discussion were webcast live. You can view the RealVideo recording of the event here, or hear it in mp3 format here.
