Location:  Columbus Mennonite Church, 35 Oakland Park Avenue, Columbus, Ohio. 
Out of gratitude for the poet's art form, Newbery Award-winning author and poet Kwame Alexander, along with Chris Colderley and Marjory Wentworth, present original poems that pay homage to twenty famed poets who have made the authors' hearts sing and their minds wonder. Mixed-media images by Ekua Holmes, winner of a Caldecott Honor and a John Steptoe New Talent Illustrator Award, complete the celebration and invite the reader to listen, wonder, and perhaps even pick up a pen. We will begin the meeting with a discussion about responding to trolls: Have you been trolled for something you posted on Facebook or Twitter? Or for a letter to the editor? One of our members recently received a threatening letter in response to a letter published by The Columbus Dispatch. Hear how this member responded and participate in a short discussion to identify ways a person or we as a group could respond to trolling. For information about COFP, visit our website at
