Poetry Blast - THE Place to Be

Where do I want to be this Saturday? Without a doubt, at the NCTE Poetry Blast. Here's the scoop. The Poetry Blast will be held on Saturday, November 17 from 2:45-5:30 pm at the Marriott Marquis Times Square, Broadway between 45th and 46th Sts., Astor Ballroom, 7th Floor. If you are at the NCTE Annual Convention, don't miss this opportunity. The program description reads:
Poetry demands to be heard! Michael Cart and Marilyn Singer co-host the Poetry Blast, where poets read their own work, featuring Helen Frost, John Grandits, Nikki Grimes, Lee Bennett Hopkins, Alan Katz, Curtis Krisler, Marilyn Nelson, Lisa Ann Sandell, Joyce Sidman, Marilyn Singer, Charles R. Smith, Jr., and Janet Wong.
Doesn't this sound amazing? I hope some of our friends in the kidlitosphere go, and I hope they report back! (Hello, Mary Lee???)
