Renown sound artist Gregory Whitehead has adapted Sharon Charde’s collection of poems, “A Branch in his Hand” into a radio drama for the BBC. Charde’s collection, based on the untimely death of her son in a 1987 fall, was published by the Backwaters Press in 2008. The radio play, titled “Four Trees Down from Ponte Sisto,” which is also the title of one of Charde’s chapbooks, will air on BBC Radio 4 June 29. Actress Anne Undeland gives voice to the story.
