Join Jennie and Dianne as they read select and rather juicy poems from The Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters. These poems are written from the perspective of those buried in the cemetery of the fictional town of Spoon River. Meet husbands and wives who drive each other crazy, the madam of a brothel who must pay regularly to support the public school, the tragic story of a young woman whose "virtue" is stolen and dies a tragic death at the hands of the doctor who was only trying to help and how it all drove her father to his own grave. Happy listening and happy new year!
