KET Education recently wrapped up our 2022 On the Same Page series with an inspiring visit with George Ella Lyon live from Eastern Kentucky. A Kentucky Poet Laureate and recent inductee into the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame, George Ella is known worldwide for her poem, Where I’m From, as well as her vast body of work for children and adults alike. The session focused on writing through difficult times, bringing a particular spotlight to the recent natural disasters across the state.
If you missed this or any other session, you and your students can catch up by visiting our On the Same Page playlist on YouTube.
On the Same Page brings award-winning, nationally recognized, and published creators to your classroom to explore the variety of processes, inspirations, and backgrounds found within the world of writing and illustrating.
