Poetry anthology by Hoboken students due for release on Sunday (via NJ)

Celebrate the publication of A Garden State of Mind, an anthology of student writing from five Hoboken schools, at a public poetry reading at 3 p.m., Sunday at the Hoboken Historical Museum, 1301 Hudson St.

The project that led to the book began last November, when poets Andy Clausen and Teresa Carson went into five Hoboken schools (Hoboken High School, Elysian School, Hoboken Charter School, HOLA Charter School, The Hudson School) and conducted workshops for about 100 students in the classes of teachers Allison Addona (Hoboken Charter), Regan Michaels (Elysian), Randi Roberts (The Hudson School), Denise Chakov (Hoboken High), and Adina Medina HOLA).

Selected students then participated in an after-school Master Class last February at the museum, led by Clausen, Carson and Hoboken Historical Museum’s Poet in Residence, Danny Shot.
