Poets, Authors, and a Sounder -- Oh My!

 Welcome to the America SCORES Seattle Book Fair Kick-Off Event!

A little history and info about why SCORES is AWESOME!

 "Be Glad Your Nose is on Your Face" by Jack Perlutsky 

  Then two poems wonderfully read by former Seattle Sounders player, Roger Levesque!
He even used some props, it made for a very fun performance. 

"Every Time I Climb a Tree" by David McCord

 Our National Poetry Slam Finalist Kendin! With his beautiful poem "What's Within Me"


More Poet-Athletes bravely shared some poetry with us as well. 
Thank you Stacy and Demetreyonna!
 

Local Author Reagan Jackson performed original pieces from her book, we were inspired!






Local poet Amber Nelson shared a Sci-Fi inspired poem and another about the sheer joy we can find in everyday things!


AnnaLee Zenkner shared a touching and personal poem.

Craig shared a witty and funny poem about dogs in India solving their education issues! Insightful and fun!

Group Shot!





Meet and Greets, autographs and photos!




 Then the poets and guests mingled!


Then we said farewell! Thanks for all the support!
