On Wednesday 25th April, we have Poetry World Slam Championship winner Harry Baker presenting a slam poetry session for all MYP students. In 2012, Mr. Baker was the youngest-ever winner of the World Slam Championships. Additionally, all Grade 7 students will get to attend a poetry writing workshop with Mr. Baker. Mr. Baker’s first collection of poems, The Sunshine Kid, was published with Burning Eye in December 2014. He is currently working on his second poetry collection, as well as regularly giving workshops and performances around the world.
If you would like to order any of Mr. Baker’s books for your child, please visit www.obido.cn/pay and click on the author section. Please note that as of 16th April, all Obido books are now “ship to home.” The “ship to school” option is no longer available from Obido. Both authors are happy to autograph their books, so please be sure to send them with your child on the day of the visit.
