Rencontre des difficultés colossales à faire un paragraphe biographique, est motorisée. Est née le deux mais toute seule : cela lui fait ni chaud ni froid, elle est vraiment motorisée. A déjà publié divers textes très motorisants, notamment RUPTURE et LéTIKA KLINIK au Denier Télégramme, L'ECHARPE DOUCE AUX YEUX DE SOIE et AMOR BARRICADE AMOR à l'Atelier de l'agneau. Donne de nombreuses lectures, lors de résidences ou de festivals au top du motoring, en France et à l’étranger. Toujours motorisée à cette heure et pour le reste ? Lire, écouter, diront toujours mille fois mieux ce qui là : m'autorise. Anne Waldman est poète, performeuse, professeur, éditrice, chercheuse touche-à-tout et activiste politique et culturelle. En 1974 elle a co-fondé The Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics avec Allen Ginsberg à Naropa University, et elle est encore aujourd’hui la directrice artistique des célèbres "Summer Writing Programs." Anne Waldman est l'auteur de plus de 40 livres, entre autres Kill or Cure, Marriage: A Sentence, Structure of the World Compared to a Bubble, du texte poétique: Outrider qui contient un entretien avec Ernesto Cardenal ainsi que d'essais sur Lorine Niedecker et Charles Olson. Manatee/Humanity (Penguin Poets 2009) est son livre le plus récent. Waldman est aussi l'auteur du légendaire Fast Speaking Woman (City Lights, San Francisco) qui a été traduit en français (Femme qui parle vite, Maelstrom, 2008), en italien et en tchèque, ainsi que de l'épopée lovis, trilogie de 800 pages (Coffee House Press), à paraître en 2011.

*5 May 19h30 Evenings with an Author: Douglas Hawes presents his book, Oradour: The Final Verdict, the anatomy and aftermath of a massacre. Oradour tells the story of the peaceful French village of Oradour-sur-Glane, where, shortly after D-Day, an SS Panzer unit massacred 642 men, women and children. Nearly nine years later, 21 members of the unit faced trial in France. Only seven of them were German, the others were French Alsations, most of whom had been forcibly inducted into the SS. But who ordered the massacre and why? Were the Alsatians victims of murderers? Oradour: The Final Verdict provides dramatic answers to these questions and a compelling and up-to-date account of a monstrous war crime and its aftermath. AT: the American Library 10, rue Général Camou 75007, RER-M° Alma-Marceau. www.americanlibraryinparis.org
