Well, we had some camera problems Friday night but we did get some of the poets on videotape.  So here is a link to our youtube site where they can be seen.

The podcast is not yet up at the Rapid City Public library's website but it is getting closer.

We will continue to work on  successfully taping more of the performances  for the future.
