“Shadows along the Waccamaw,” a presentation by Dan Albergotti
Published on November 24, 2008
Dan Albergotti reads five poems in and around his current home of Conway, South Carolina, in locations that include the Waccamaw River and nearby Pawley's Island. For Albergotti, the natural world allows explorations of beauty, love, serendipity, and death. His poems also examine the "emotional landscape of denial" that marked his childhood and youth.
"Shadows along the Waccamaw" is part of the Poets in Place series, a Research Collaboration in the Humanities initiative funded through Emory University’s Presidential Woodruff Fund, in collaboration with the Office of the Provost. Series producers are Natasha Trethewey and Allen Tullos.
