Posner Poetry and Prose Project

My daughter Jessica has started “P4”, an intern project for the

Posner Center at Carnegie Mellon University
.
Posner houses rare and historic books and art on the CMU campus in
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. P4 stands for Jessica’s
Posner Poetry and Prose Project.
P4 is an effort to bring high quality recordings of beloved works
of literature to YouTube’s broad audience. Jessica has started
by seeing what is already available. Wonderful efforts she has found so far:


    • The 116 Project
      for which “this cool dude wanders around with a
      minicam and a beat up book of sonnets and asks random people to
      read Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare”

    • “The Cremation of Sam McGee”
      by Robert W. Service (1874-1958),
      read by Urgelt

    • “If”
      by Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936), read by Dennis Hopper

I am looking forward to more as her P4 project develops over the
semester.
