The Humanities Festival and The Poetry Foundation present what has been billed as "an evening of poetry film and discussion." Franco, who wears many artistic hats, has adapted and directed a film, "Herbert White," based on the poem of the same title by Bidart, an acclaimed American writer who teaches at Wellesley College and has published numerous poetry collections. Franco's debut book of poetry, "Directing Herbert White," will be published in April but available at the event. Poetry Foundation president Robert Polito moderates the event.
