My night at the library

Hi everyone,

Here are some pictures taken the other night by Library Community Relations Director Kathleen O’Dell when I was giving my program. The charming young miss, Lilly Williams, did a beautiful job of reading with expression when she joined me in a two-voice poem.

Janine Clark-Barry, a frequent visitor here on my blog, was the perfect grump in a two-voice poem by that name. Way to go, Janine!

All in all, a fun night. Sandy was there but wound up minding the book sales and so was spared hearing me do my thing for the millionth time. Thank you, dear Sandy!These are my new friends, Brendan, Raanan, Isaac and Abigail Minnick.

And to Kathleen go big thanks for setting up the event, including it in the Library’s promotion listing of upcoming events (The Bookends), promoting the evening in numerous other ways, and extending her long day to introduce me and stay to the end. Thank you, Kathleen!

Last day of my poetry display

Hi everyone,

Today is the last day of my display in the entrance hall of The Library Center in Springfield, Missouri. It has been a pleasure to know that a lot of people have seen my samples during April and I’m grateful to everyone at TLC for inviting me to put my poetry related books and materials in the showcase to celebrate National Poetry Month.

If you live in the area and would like to see the display, it will be up all day today and I’ll go out at 10:00 in the morning to put everything back in boxes and take home.
