Metaphors Be With You: An Informative, Slightly Irreverent & Totally Tremendous Guide to Living the Poet's Life with Allan Wolf (of the species Poemo sapiens) @ Town Center Legacy Room

What can you learn from a baby, two pieces of string, a coat hanger, a bottle of maple syrup, Teletubbies, and Edgar Allan Poe? Everything. That’s what. Join author, performance poet, and speaker, Allan Wolf, as he takes us on a meaningful, memorable (and very funny) tour of a poet’s brain. A certified practicing member of the species, Poemo sapiens, Allan Wolf, will read and recite from his books; plus, he will sing, play guitar, juggle, transform into a T-Rex, and whatever else it takes, to celebrate the Poemo sapiens in all of us! Wolf believes in the healing powers of poetry recitation and has committed to memory nearly a thousand poems. This family-friendly, interactive presentation can be enjoyed by Poemo sapiens at any age or stage of evolution.
