A Passel of Poets: Children’s Poetry in the Modern Age
Elizabeth Bird, NYPL Senior Children’s Librarian and SLJ blogger extraordinaire invited me along with fellow poets Bobbi Katz, Marilyn Singer, and Charles R. Smith for a conversation on the state of children’s poetry today and the nitty-gritty of writing a good poem for a young audience. Betsy always keeps her Literary Salons lively. Her intros are poetic!
