'went with Sara and Endi to the opening reception of "Barnstormers" last evening. I was reminded why I generally avoid openings, as it is difficult to focus on the art. I will return to really check it out, but my initial impression was that though there was much work that was disappointing, there was enough that was so good that it more than made up for it. A favorite included this wonderful piece by Dennis Mcnett. It -- alone -- is worth a visit to the exhibit. It continues through April 17th at 548 West 28th Street.
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.
