Poetry Reading

Monday night was a big event for us--Joel's first official poetry reading at Barnes & Noble. The high school where he works had an event at our local store where a percentage of the profits purchased on Monday went to the library. Every year they have students and teachers "perform" in the cafe during the event.

This year Joel volunteered to read some of his poetry. There were about 25 people there--teachers, friends, and family. He did a great job reading some of his work from his master's thesis project and people seemed to really enjoy it.

I hope we have many more events like this--which would mean some of his poetry was published!
