morgan.vsmCommunity Lecture with Bill Morgan,  who worked as Allen Ginsberg’s bibliographer for twenty years, until the poet’s death in 1997. This lecture will focus on what is arguably Allen Ginsberg’s greatest work, “Kaddish for Naomi Ginsberg,” which was written following the death of Ginsberg’s mother in a New York mental institution. Ginsberg penned one of the most emotional and moving poems of the 20th century when a traditional mourner’s kaddish could not be recited. The speaker will also share images from Ginsberg’s family album.
