SAN RAFAEL, CA: On Wednesday evening, February 28, 2018 as a much needed rain fell beyond the window panes framing Rebound Bookstore, poetry paid Camron McDonald back in a big way. Joining authors Margaret Stawowy and Doreen Stock, Camron, who is only 13, read four poems from his debut chapbook: Hero: and other new poems plus almost poems. This was his first time reading in front of an audience and he nailed it! Second in the line-up, he approached the music stand with anxiety-laced confidence. And then, all he could do was lower his head and snicker at the awe of the moment, and of course the audience joined him, which brought the comic relief he needed to believe the room was on his side.

We’re close to reaching our $350.00 goal and there’s still time to donate:
