In this week’s installment of Poetry Friday, we bring back Elizabeth Hellstern, inventor of the Telepoem Booth, a vintage rotary phone booth where you can dial numbers from a directory and listen to recorded poems. To date, Elizabeth has curated more than a dozen Telepoem Booth installations across the country and recorded nearly a thousand poets reading their work. She has a new book out called, Missed Calls and Other Poetry. It was supposed to coincide with the opening of more Telepoem Booths, but the COVID-19 pandemic has put that on hold for public safety reasons. So, Elizabeth has created an interactive online project to experience the Telepoem Booths while they’re temporarily shut down. Here is Elizabeth Hellstern, with poets Chris Green and Jesse Sensibar, in this week’s Poetry Friday segment. More [HERE]
