A message from Julie Colando:
Thanks to PTSA we are thrilled to welcome poet Charles Waters to QAE for two assemblies on Thursday, January 25th. 8-8:50pm for K-2 and 9:10-10 for 3rd-5th grades. Attached is a book order form for copies of his breathtaking new book: Can I Touch Your Hair? Poems About Race, Mistakes and Friendship.
Charles Waters will read poems from some of his earlier work as well as poems from this new book. as well as talking about his writing process as a poet. He will also read poems with students from QAE, who will be working on poems and artwork around the book's themes–race, mistakes and friendship in advance of his visit. Antioch University will include one QAE student's poem in a chapbook they will be publishing with a previously unpublished poem of Charles Waters'. This chapbook will be distributed to public school libraries in our area.
You can download the book order form below. BOOK ORDER FORMS ARE DUE BY TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, 2018.
