Douglas Florian tomorrow

Hello everyone,

One of America’s most popular poets and artists will be my Featured Guest tomorrow. Check up on Douglas Florian’s work and you’ll see what I mean. I asked for a bio and received a modestly brief sample. Here it is.

Douglas Florian was born in 1955 in New York City. He studied art at Queens College and the School of Visual Arts.

He has written and illustrated more than fifty books including beast feast, winner of The Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award, insectlopedia, a national bestseller, Dinothesaurus, and most recently Poetrees (Simon & Schuster/Beach Lane Books).

He also creates abstract paintings which can be viewed at his web site, and his gallery Bravin Lee Programs:  


By the way, if you’ve never signed my guest book, it’s easy to do and I always appreciate it when visitors sign and leave a little note. Here’s the link. . While you’re at the website, I hope you’ll look around. Thanks to Kathy Temean, it’s a nice site and I’m pleased with it.
