Tuesday night was Family Library Night. I had the unexpected delight to have PTA approach me about having a poet come for the evening. Short notice but Susan Blackaby, interviewed a couple of weeks ago said yes, she’d come.
A small but intimate group gathered for the event. Susan shared some of her poems and then led the students through writing a poem. As the students came up and shared their poetry, she gently guided them and gave feedback. Everyone left with a “poet’s license”.
