I heard yesterday from Kimberly M. Hutmacher that her new article, “Poetry Anthologies: Bringing Big Ideas and Big Conversations to Young Audiences,” has just come out in CHILDREN’S BOOK INSIDER, published in Ft. Collins, Colorado by Laura Backes.
To write the article, Kimberly interviewed four of us, Heidi Roemer, Sylvia Vardell, Janet Wong, and me. She included poems we selected asked us to discuss briefly our thoughts about the poems and why they are relevant for young readers.
My thanks to Laura Backes, Kimberly, and to my fellow poetry lovers in the article. CHILDREN’S BOOK INSIDER is a subscription publication and well worth adding to your reading library.
