The Celebration Continues: Spoken Word on LEA 9

It is April at Crazy Eights on LEA Region 9, and even though the birthday party itself is a not-so-dim memory, the party is not over yet.  There's plenty more yet to come at Seanchai Library's celebration of stories and spoken word, including an observance of National Poetry Month (in the U.S.) and the arrival of the spaceship "Valley Forge" for Featured Book Series #3's presentation of "Silent Running."
