Mayor Michael Nutter, First Book, and Yours Truly: A Few New Scenes

Friday, November 19, 2010

Readers of this blog know that I had the privilege of spending part of an afternoon with the students of KIPP, in the company of Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, in celebration of First Book, that wonderful organization dedicated to ensuring that every child has a book to call his or her own. More than 100 copies of Dangerous Neighbors were given to the ninth graders that day, a chance for the Mayor, First Book President Kyle Zimmer, and me to spend some time with young Philadelphia readers.

This morning, Regina Cronin sent along the photographs taken by Michael Tolbert—images that return to me memories of a most spectacular day. Thank you, Regina and Michael (and First Book and Mr. Mayor).
