Great radio program on The Bob Edwards Show: The Day Carl Sandburg Died. Edwards talks to Paul Bonesteel – documentary writer, editor and director of the film The Day Carl Sandburg died, which airs Monday, September 24 on PBS stations as part of the American Masters series (check your local listings).
The Day Carl Sandburg Died tells the life story of the populist poet. Sandburg was known for bringing Chicago, “the city of the big shoulders,” to life in his writings and for his close associations with socialism. Carl Sandburg won two Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry, and one for his multi-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln.
