Everyone who had the opportunity to meet and listen to Bruce Dethlefsen can count themselves as very, very lucky. Our current Wisconsin Poet Laureate is a wonderful, engaging presenter who sprinkles the readings of his poetry with tidbits for helping us all become better observers and writers.
Bruce visited the Flambeau, Ladysmith, and Bruce schools on September 21 and 22. On Thursday afternoon, he met with writers from the Writers' Exchange and in the evening he held an open mic session hosted by Pat and Marty Reynolds of Carnegie Hall and Mme Toad.
No Toad House event is every complete without Bufo and so here he is, the only Toad ever admitted to Carnegie Hall, listening attentively to Bruce with apologies to all non-amphibians.
As you can see, Bufo is fond of books and I know he cherishes the poetry book, Breather, by Bruce.
