I stopped by MBW's Icons exhibit yesterday. Though it supposedly ends at the end of this month, it's beginning to feel like a permanent Meatpacking District installation. Anyway -- once again there are endless new variations on the same themes and lots of folks passing through. I know MBW's "playing" us, but I'm still intrigued by it all!
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.
