This event was set up by Charles Waters, who is a regular at Poet's House -- and of course everyone there loves him!
It's a beautiful building near Battery Park with all sorts of poetry memorabilia... and of course the 70,000 volume collection of poetry books. :)
We presented on CAN I TOUCH YOUR HAIR?, and the amazing staff put together a "hair" craft, much like Sean and Selina's craft for PEN World Voice, though there was no prior discussion about it, so it was just a happy coincidence. The kids really seemed to enjoy it! We loved taking
Also in the audience were three of my guys, though two of them were sick! You can probably tell which ones from the picture. :)
|Paul (sick), Andrew (not sick), Eric (sick)|
And here's the reason for the book and why do these things:
|"Back off, I'm a poet."|
So many thanks to all involved! And readers, next time you are in New York City, be sure to visit Poet's House. It's all kinds of inspiring. I know you're going to love it!
