L

G

ayle Danley is a championship poet
and grief writer who has won both
the national and international poetry slam titles. Her passion is teaching kids,
through slam poetry, how to soothe their
wounds. Danley traces her love for words,
especially spoken word, to her childhood in
Georgia, where she soaked up encyclopedias
and carried around a book of rhymes ("Jack
Sprat could eat no fat..." "Fuzzy Wuzzy was
a bear...") because she adored how silly they
were. "She was always reading and going to
the library," reports her uncle, who with his
wife raised Danley as a child. This session
will take place on Monday, June 25, 10:30
- 11:30 a.m. at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
Danley will present "Poets Lives Matter:
Poems from the Road," sharing her electrifying original poetry about her experiences as a
master teaching artist visiting schools, libraries, and detention facilities across the nation.
Danley has been named the Maryland Library Association's Poet of the Year for 2018,
the Young Audiences of Maryland Artist of
the Year, and Young Audiences National
Artist of the Year. She recently joined the

Viola Davis to Close New Orleans Conference June 26

V

iola Davis will close the 2018 Annual Conference as she discusses
her children's book, Corduroy Takes
a Bow. Illustrated by Jody Wheeler, Davis
celebrates 50 years of America's favorite teddy
bear with a brand new, classically illustrated
picture book. Using her own experiences as
a Tony Award-winning Broadway actress,
Davis writes the story of Corduroy and Lisa's
first trip to the theater. As usual, Corduroy
adventures off on his own, and readers follow
his escapades as he explores all over: from
the orchestra pit, to the costumes rack, to
the props table, and ultimately onto the
stage itself, before being reunited with Lisa.
A  beautifully illustrated tale with a classic
feel, sure to spark an interest in theater in
children of any age. The book will be available Fall 2018. This session will take place on
