Rosemarie Dombrowski has a PhD in American literature and worships at the temple of Walt Whitman, which really just means she's a modern-day Transcendentalist.
Her devotion to Italian shoes and American cars runs deep but doesn't detract from her love of teaching.
Currently, she's searching for someone to publish her poetry. In the meantime, she's making a documentary film, publishing the 8th issue of the student literary journal on campus, and working as an editor for Four Chambers literary magazine.
Hosted by Bill Campana, Jack Evans, and Shawnte Orion
