KWAME ALEXANDER: POETRY, KIDS, AND THE 5TH AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILDREN’S BOOK FAIR
– (COOL) PROGENY, May 2017
How do you get your child into reading? According to New York Times bestselling author, Kwame Alexander, you introduce them to poetry.

It’s because, on a very concrete level, it’s not that many words so it’s not that intimidating to me. There’s so much white space.”

January Events in Downtown Baltimore: Martin Luther King, Jr. Events & Thomas the Train at Port Discovery
Next weekend is a long one in Baltimore, with schools and many offices closed on Monday, and an even longer one in Baltimore County, where schools are closed on Tuesday, as well.
It’s also an eventful and thoughtful weekend. On Monday, January 16, the city of Baltimore will honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with several events, including a parade, now in its 17th year.
The parade begins at noon, starting at the intersection of MLK Boulevard and Eutaw Street. It will then head south on MLK and disband at Baltimore Street. Line up anywhere along the route; the best show (and biggest crowds) might be near the reviewing stand, located at MLK and Franklin.
