Documentary Poetry on Marcellus Shale by Julia Spicher Kasdorf

She took a sabbatical last year to visit areas of Pennsylvania affected by Marcellus Shale development, and is now completing a collection of documentary poetry based on her interviews with local residents. WPSU's Kristine Allen speaks with Kasdorf about her recent foray into "docupoetry."
