Maker Faire

On Saturday IMG_1580I attended the 10th Annual Bay Area Maker Faire with California Poets in the Schools. These two young ladies stopped by the booth and added a leaf to the “Poetree”! The Maker Faire says “We are Makers — changing the way we learn, create and see the future.”

I had a good time with working poets Cathy Barber and Jackie Hallerberg and Belmont Poet Laureate Tanu Wakefield. I ate a corn dog (if you are going to a fair, I think you have to do it right!) — and I saw lots of robots and fireballs. People laid down some verses on the sidewalk with chalk… IMG_1578 See the fireballs leaping from the pointy iron things in the background! I was so happy to spend time with fellow working poets, and speak with the people who came by the booth to talk about making poetry…
