BLACK OUT, A KWAME ALEXANDER READING CHALLENGE: Beloved author and poet Kwame Alexander challenges us to read and create! If you have read his book, "Booked," then you know about a very funny scene with a "blackout" poem. For this challenge, begin a new book and stop reading at a random page. From there, copy down the text on the page. Then, begin crossing out letters and/or words until you make your own new creation, a blackout poem. Create yours and share it with Kwame on social media! Jan 15, 2024 - Apr 15, 2024 (0-14)
