Life on the Deckle Edge

Cedartown, Poem in Your Pocket Day

Elizabeth Dulemba was right: the Cedar Valley Arts Festival folks put on a lovely show! Weather was a bit warm, but so are the organizers.

Cedar Valley Arts Festival

I'm looking forward to presenting at the Cedar Valley Arts Festival in Cedartown, Ga. this Saturday, April 25, at 11:30 in the Children's area. The organizers are so enthusiastic about providing cultural and literary opportunities to their community's youngsters. My friend Elizabeth Dulemba - www.dulemba.com - dazzled them last year.
