March is Women’s History Month and this week, KPFA features a special program about four important feminist poets, who have been influential for the past 50 years: Pulitzer Prize winners Maxine Kumin and Carolyn Kizer, as well as MacArthur genius Adrienne Rich and the late Audre Lorde. Three of these women are still actively writing, publishing and mentoring the next couple of generations. Produced by Letters in the Air.
We continue with the second part of Wendy Wassserstein’s "An American Daughter."
Cast Mary McDonnell, David Birney, Kevin McCarthy, Anna Gunn, Jamie Hanes, Gregory Itzin, Claudette Nevins, Denise Nicholas
Pulitzer-Prize winner Wendy Wasserstein spins a comic and moving tale about the pitfalls that await political appointees. As a respected health crusader and devoted wife and mother, Dr. Lyssa Hughes seems perfect for the role of U.S. Surgeon General, until a chance remark at a fashionable brunch sets off a media feeding frenzy.
