Traveling Stanzas, a program of the Wick Poetry Center and Glyphix Studios is in it's second year. This spring to commemorate the 40th anniversary of May Fourth the combination of poetry and art produced 10 Peace Stanzas. The poetic posters are seen on buses and in coffee shops as well as online. The events of May 4, 1970 are not specifically part of the project, just the concepts of peace, understanding, and listening to one another.

Thank you Vivian Goodman!-for your gift of allowing us to listen to our daughter Grace yesterday morning as part of your interview(s) for the program regarding the Peace Stanzas. My mother and Step-father, long time listeners of WKSU, also listened on line from Billings, MT where they now live. Would it be possible for me to obtain an audio copy of the article as it was broadcast yesterday? If so, how may I obtain it? Regarless, it was a real delight to hear Grace's voice as part of such a wonderful, expressive, and well intended collaboration and as a part of Morning Edition, to which I listen every day. Again-thank you!
