In 2011, Sarah Kay performed her poem “B” at the TED conference in Long Beach, California to standing ovations. I remember watching her talk for the first time, completely mesmerized and moved. Her fantastic talk has now been turned into a book:
Originally written in 2007, “B” is a thank you note, a love letter, a wish, a promise, a confession, and a secret. “B” is the perfect gift for every mother and every daughter. Short, touching and lovingly illustrated by Sophia Janowitz.
The incredibly charming Sarah Kay has been a performing poet since she was 14 years old. She is the founder of Project V.O.I.C.E, teaching poetry and self-expression at schools across the United States.
