Fred & Susan Chappell reading Part One

I had the pleasure of recording a unique and splendid poetry reading last Saturday. Former Poet Laureate of North Carolina, Fred Chappell, and his lovely wife Susan read a number of nested or embedded poems (a poem within a poem) from shadow box, Mr. Chappell's new book.

Kathryn Stripling Byer, another Poet Laureate of North Carolina, has a blog post and an excellent example of a nested poem on her My Laureate's Lasso blog.

I will post Part Two of this wonderful series within the next few days.
