SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8 at 4:00 PM L.S. ASEKOFF reads from FREEDOM HILL "Freedom Hill is boisterous with energy and ambitious with materials; Asekoff is a strange and brilliant poet, and this is an intellectually passionate, vigorous and culturally relevant poem." -Tony Hoagland With topics as varied as religion and C-SPAN, Louis Asekoff's epic three-part monologue Freedom Hill is a dramatic, fervent meditation on the highs and lows of one fairly simple man's life. Hailed by Poet Laureate Philip Levine as "a true surreal visionary," Asekoff is this year's recipient of the prestigious Witter Bynner Award for poetry, an alumnus of Brandeis University, and a 1957 graduate of Waltham High School.
