If you search for "BOA Editions" on YouTube you'll come across all sorts of cool videos of our authors reading at different venues. But now BOA has our very own YouTube Channel - and we're about to start packing it with some high quality literary viewing! Our first offering is from BOA's "Poetry is Jazz" event, held at the Rochester Contemporary Art Center on June 16th 2010, featuring BOA poet Sean Thomas Dougherty and the ABC quartet. This video (I really want to call it a documentary because it's certainly more than just a straightforward videotaping) was done by Icon Creative. We give special thanks to Icon's president Tim Wainwright. Also a special shout-out to Steve Smock who created a painting during this event which he subsequently donated for auction at our annual Dine & Rhyme last month. In subsequent segments, you'll see time lapse video of Steve creating the painting and a great shot of the final product. The Poetry Is Jazz video is now broken into a dozen sections of 5-8 minutes each. We will be adding new segments to our YouTube channel throughout October and by the end of the month, the whole thing will be posted. Happy Viewing!
