|Janet at Poetry for Children is hosting
this week's Poetry Friday festival of posts.
The list of featured authors includes several poets and children's authors I hope to see:
Frederick O. Foote
E. Ethelbert Miller
Carole Boston Weatherford
Did you see a familiar name on there? Here's where you can find me:
Saturday, 1 PM at the CityLit Stage
Chapbook Champions: Winners of the Harriss Poetry Prize
The Poet's Response: A Conversation on Social Justice and Poetics (Little Patuxent Review and Split This Rock)
I'm excited to meet Laura Gehl, who has been featured here at Author Amok.
I can't leave without sharing a poem.
E. Ethelbert Miller's website has a wonderful selection of his poems. "Circus Animal" is a powerful short poem. I think this is a great one for eliciting a powerful discussion with your high school students. You'll find the poem here.
