Oh, how very cool! Janet Wong came to my school last year and she was the warmest, most personable person-- and inspiring, too. She had kids from kindergarten to 8th grade writing poems and just eating out of her hand. Not to mention that she's a terrific writer. Can't wait to read the interview. And the book is going right on my order list!
Janet is a dynamic speaker, too. I met her a few years ago at a children's literature institute at Simmons College in Boston. She is most definitely personable--and she has a wonderful sense of humor. I have been an admirer of her work since I read her first book of poems GOOD LUCK GOLD.
