Reviews for Book the Babysitter:
“A magic night – I left feeling inspired and uplifted.”
“Absolutely stunned by the poetic talent and the range of poems and feelings.”
“All the poets blew me away with their work – the emotion and strength in the room was palpable.”
“The power, pain, sexiness, joy and beauty these poets poured into their words was astonishing. Parents, women as they age, they’re often groups that get made fun of or are disregarded. You really shouldn’t. There’s magic in there that you’d do well to pay attention to.”
“I couldn’t sleep last night I was so excited about falling in love with poetry again. The amazing women who shared their words were so inspiring. Thank you for a magical evening.”
