Tom Townsend, who is a big fan of Fahle's has been working on this project for several months.
"I have been communicating with one of the producers, Townsend said. "She said this is poetry month, would you be interested in having members of your group talk about poetry. I said yes. I told her about our UN-birthday party at the Laurel Park Place Mall , and said I hoped to be invited back on the show this fall before the movie Anonymous is released. I was asked to bring a sonnet or a poem."
Tune in on Thursday to hear Thom Hunter and Tom Townsend discuss their favorite poet with Detroit's favorite talk show host on American Public Media WDET-FM at Wayne State University in Detroit.
