Edgerton Sterling North Book & Film Festival Fundraiser

The Edgerton Sterling North Book & Film Festival is proud to present the premier showing of a critically acclaimed film, ‘The Stone Circle’, and an opportunity to meet the northern light of the film, Terry Wooten; one of the few remaining poet bards of this century.

The legendary Stone Circle is a triple ring of 88 boulders located on forested land in northern lower Michigan near Traverse City. Builder and host poet, Terry Wooten, safeguards this national treasure along with a dedicated group of poets and musicians, who perform by a blazing campfire to a background chorus of croaking frogs and howling coyotes. The atmosphere recalls ancient cultures that came together in family and community groups. For three decades, the Stone Circle contributors have kept the oral tradition of poetry, and the flame of art, burning brightly.

So what is the oral tradition? Essentially, it is a form of communication in which knowledge, art, and ideas have been preserved and transmitted orally from one generation to the next. The transmitting takes many forms: folktales, songs, speech, prose, hymns and, of course, poetry. The oral tradition of involves the memorization and reciting of verse. In addition to hard work, it is also lots of fun – found in the faces of dimly-lit onlookers; the faces of rapt attention, smiles, tears, deep-rooted connection with the one who holds the luminescent stage.

Terry Wooten is a master of the oral tradition. He has eight hours of poetry memorized – in alphabetical order – a sort-of human jukebox. Put in your request and out comes Charles Bukowski, Lord Byron, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Mary Oliver, Theodore Roethke, Dylan Thomas, Walt Whitman, and many more.

The Stone Circle documentary features interviews with Wooten and the other poets and storytellers, who arrive for the 30th Anniversary celebration from as far away as the American Desert and European Colosseum. They speak of history, myth, fire, storytelling, the magic of the stones, and the importance of poetry’s great oral tradition in modern society. The film follows Terry Wooten through the struggles of building the Circle, memorizing eight hours of verse and story, and keeping poetry alive in a world of screens and buttons. The film also follows other poets and musicians – many who have performed at Stone Circle since childhood – as well as a young poet about to perform for the first time.

The Stone Circle is the longest-running outdoor poetry gathering in the United States, and probably the world. The film culminates in the spectacular performances of the 30th Anniversary celebration; a triumph of outstanding effort in the service of Art and Humanity.
