When I left the studio last night, I looked back at the lit signs and the murals and thought, “How cool..” I feel like I have another family now and they are very dear to me! I got in the car and checked my phone. There were 2 texts, one from Gwyn pretty much summing up what I just said with the addition that there are kids still outside talking about the evening and how cool that was, then the other was from Ryan with this photo for us… yup, Y@A is going to be really magical!
This is Ryan Parker and Paige Ryler, our featured poet last night.
More photos from the evening. This was probably the most diverse and talented group yet. We had a full band inside, duets and trios, plus all the poetry the room could handle! Once again, thanks to Ryan for his electricity and positivity!
