"Brooklyn Poet Laureate Tina Chang hosts the poets of Ronald Edmonds Learning Center (MS113) Award-winning poet Tina Chang was recently named Poet Laureate of Brooklyn by Borough President Marty Markowitz.
One of Chang’s initiatives as Laureate is the Adopt-A-Poet Project, in which published poets bring the craft and appreciation of poetry into the borough’s middle schools. Chang launches the project this evening with a reading by the students of Fort Greene’s own Ronald Edmonds Learning Center (MS 113), who have been working with her on their own poems this month. Join us to hear from Brooklyn’s budding poetic talents, hosted by our own poet laureate."
