Video: Austin Notables Read Poetry by Kealing Middle School Students

Apr 17, 2014

To commemorate National Poetry Month, we've been airing poems by the students of Kealing Middle School's Blank Page writing program every day this April.

We're pretty proud of the lineup of talented Austinites we got to read those poems, including Patty Griffin, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Kathy Valentine, KUT's own John Aielli, and even Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell. Check out a video of our distinguished poetry readers below.

To read and listen to complete poems by the Kealing students (including a few that were a little too long to make it on our airwaves), visit our Poetry Month page.
