[Xmca-l] Kozol's writing place



Hi Everyone,
The first 12 minutes of th
​e program linked below​
are worth watching
​ because shed light on Kozol's creative process of writing and reveal some
of the sources of his inspiration to write.
 Langston Hughes sent Kozol an
autographed
photo
​ of himself​

​after​

​Kozol​
 was fired
​ from his first teaching job​
for reading one of
​Hughes'​
 poems in a high school English class.
​
​Kozol​
 says reading Rilke, Yeats and Auden are his soul foo
​d​ and
​ he was also a personal friend of Mister Rogers.* Who knew?​*
