A record crowd gathered at the Laura (Riding) Jackson home on the Environmental Learning Campus to enjoy an afternoon of readings from teen writers and local poets, followed by nationally acclaimed poets, Shane Seely, Claude Wilkinson and Lawrence Hetrick.  It was the 5th annual poetry event that benefits the Laura (Riding) Jackson Foundation. This year featured a Silent Auction of items provided by local businesses, artists, and craftsmen, music played by the Hot-Sauce Boys, and a Southern-style barbecue dinner.
