After spending my day reading about domestic violence and its effect on children (to help Sara with her research), I took the crosstown bus to the Park Avenue Armory. I was curious to check out Creative Time's "Democracy in America: The National Campaign." There wasn't much to engage me, but this beautiful Chris Stain mural made the trip worthwhile.
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
