NCTE 2011: 4 Big Poetry Events

From Sylvia Vardell’s Poetry for Children blog:

There were four other poetry-focused events I attended at the NCTE conference (besides my own presentation) that I want to share with you. These included:

  • J. Patrick Lewis speaking as the new recipient of the NCTE Excellence in Poetry for Children award
  • A “Parade of Poets” featuring all the recipients of the NCTE Excellence in Poetry for Children award with four in attendance: J. Patrick Lewis, Nikki Grimes, Eloise Greenfield, and Arnold Adoff
  • The “Master Class” session for professors of children’s literature featuring Joyce Sidman and Pat Mora, as well as professors Trish Bandre and Barbara Kiefer
  • The annual CLA Breakfast with Joyce Sidman speaking

Check out the amazing video clips!
