SPEEDWAY AND SWAN is a one-hour free-format radio program presenting contemporary poetry against a context of various musical selections.  Host Brian Blanchfield is joined in each episode by a rotating co-host who brings a selection of poetry from his or her personal canon, which, along with the freshest and best from the "new shelves," they read live. 

 

Join us for a reception to ensure Lois Shelton's legacy and learn how you can help be a part of a campaign to name the Poets Cottage in her honor.
