Feature Fun Friday - Levar Burton and National Poetry Month

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): What the Water Gave Me by Florence + The Machine.

This video combines so many of my favorite things. Poetry, libraries, Shel Silverstein, libraries, and LeVar Burton. Reading Shel Silverstein. In a library. My geekiness overload meter just went off the chart! *happy sigh*

Apparently LeVar Burton was in town to speak for the Culture House at Johnson County Community College and decided to stop by the Kansas City Library on the way (isn't that just awesome?!) to read to the kids. And he was joined by author Shane Evans. This may be a new favorite video. Have a great weekend, everyone!

What a great video! I heart Levar Burton like whoa. Also: you have good taste in music - I've been rocking out to Florence + The Machine, too! Happy Saturday!

How super fun. I love public readings like this at the library...especially of kids lit when the reader and the kids have so much fun.
