Welcome to episode 5!
Note: This video is the first of the last two videos I did with Lee for this series before he passed away. Since we did not complete the series, and it was so important to Lee to do so, the last two episodes (the 80s and 90s) will be narrated by Dr. Sylvia Vardell. I know Lee would be happy that a poetry advocate as dedicated and knowledgeable as he will be completing this history in his stead.
In this series, Lee Bennett Hopkins takes us through a chronology of American poets for children from 1920 to 1999. Each episode focuses on the poets of a single decade, and the posts include a few sample poems, photos, and a growing timeline of poets.
We hope you’ll enjoy this journey through time with us!
