Last night was a great night for writers in Denver. Went to hear Nikki Giovanni speak at the Tattered Cover (but forgot my camera! Duh!) She was wonderful. She was here in support of her 2 new kids books, Hip Hop Speaks to Children, which has a CD and includes a recording of Langston Hughes (amongst others) and Lincoln and Douglass: An American Friendship. Both are wonderful! I took a signed copy of Hip Hop Speaks to Children to Head Start today--they loved it! Fun Fact: Nikki has a tattoo that says "thug life" on her arm in honor of Tupac.
