  North Dakota Quarterly is a long-standing literary and humanities publication from the University of North Dakota -- one of the famous “little magazines” that have been the traditional seed beds of talented writers. During these trying times, it’s being offered free of charge. Here to discuss the current issue is the editor, Bill Caraher.

In this debut episode of The Great American Folk Show, host Tom Brosseau kicks off the series with some of his dear friends: Oscar-nominated actor John C. Reilly, viral North Dakota food columnist Marilyn Hagerty, artist Penni Emrich Burkum, and musicians Tom Lennon and Heidi Gluck.

Bill Thomas presents a selection of many of the performances from the 2020 North Dakota Finals.  For this, the students study the poems meaning – not just the obvious, but every nuance.  They practice saying them over and over, with coaching by teachers, paying attention to timing and feeling and diction.  This is 53 minutes worth of wonderful poetry, wonderfully performed.  Some are funny, some are serious, some are old and some are new.

A French historical drama written and directed by Céline Sciamma.
