Although I missed the opening, (and thanks, Shawnee, for going and taking all these cool photos), I did get over there on Sunday. I liked what I saw. The exhibit seems to reflect a new direction for Cope2 -- artistically and conceptually, 'will return with my interns on Friday, as I'm curious to get their reaction and I want more time there myself!
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.
