9th Annual Poetry Round Up at TLA

This time last week, I was lucky enough to host the 9th annual Poetry Round Up at the Texas Library Association conference in Fort Worth.  What an amazing lineup of poets and what a great audience. For those of you who couldn't join us, here are a few video clips to share the magic!
