The right book at the right time: an impassioned defense of teachers and why our society needs them now more than ever.
Formerly president of Poetry Slam, Inc., Taylor Mali is one of the most well-known poets to have emerged from the poetry slam movement. He is the author of two books of poetry, What Learning Leaves and The Last Time as We Are, and four CDs of spoken word. He has appeared on the first two seasons of HBO's Def Poetry Jam and won the jury prize for best one-man show at the U. S. Comedy Arts Festival. A passionate advocate of teachers, he travels the country recruiting the next generation of teachers with his 1,000 Teachers Campaign. Taylor lives in New York. Adam Verner has narrated over fifty books, including the AudioFile Earphones Award winner Pavilion of Women by Pearl S. Buck. He works as a full-time voice actor and on stage in Chicago.
"It's a breezy listen, with Mali's writing and Verner's delivery often taking on poetic qualities." ---AudioFile
