"Exercises to Free the Tongue" added to New York Public Library collection

The New York Public Library artist's books collection has acquired "Exercises to Free the Tongue." Poems and text by award-winning poet Molly Tenenbaum, artist's book by Ellen Ziegler. Illuminated with historic images and ephemera from Molly's grandparents, ventriloquists on the vaudeville circuit in the early 1900s, this book of poems plays with ventriloquial metaphors of voice and breath.
