A magical evening! Allan Weiss and I were joined by guest readers Ivy Reiss, John Oughton, Janice Colman, Norman Allan and Paul Edward Costa, with cameos by Tonya Liburd and Olga Stein. The readers were fabulous! I didn’t want it to end. And of course there were paintings to go with my poems and stories.
