Summit Academy Charter School! Back to Brooklyn

February 5, 2010

I'm exhausted: took a train and two subways to go to Red Hook, Brooklyn, to do an author visit in a new charter school-- so far all sixth graders: the Summit Academy Charter School. Look at the website to see some of the kids I taught!

It was a good experience but wore me out. Just twenty or thirty blocks from where we used to live-- I crossed Court Street and Clinton and Henry and Hicks. Neat to be down there, briefly in Carroll Gardens, then under the BQE and over to the school. The kids were lots of fun-- a teacher founded school, and my connection via Teachers & Writers has written them (successfully) some grants. Lots of emphasis on colleges-- they have signs saying the year their class will graduate from high school and college!

Your efforts are appreciated -- not only in Brooklyn but also here at Anderbo.com for so generously mentioning the 2009 Anderbo Poetry Prize contest last summer. A winner has just been announced -- it's Nancy K. Pearson of Cape Cod, Massachusetts for her poem, Prairies".
Thanks,&
Best wishes.
