WordPlay

For National Poetry Month, Barbara Gray welcomes in Reba Hennessy, the development and communication director for WordPlay, the youth literacy organization in Northside, and Solomon Booker, a student poet and part of their Scribes program. 

Cincinnati's Northside community embraces its diverse population, and two local human service agencies are teaming up to better support the neighborhood. 

The 4th Annual Bend in the River Art & Music Festival will be held Saturday, October 7th from noon to 10pm at The Sanctuary, a renovated historic church built in 1847, at 2110 St. Michael Street.  It's a free, family-friendly event showcasing the transformation of the lower Price Hill neighborhood.

The Northside neighborhood is home to WordPlay, a relatively new children’s literacy non-profit, giving neighborhood kids a place to go to ready, write and find new ways to express themselves. Libby Hunter, co-founder and executive director, is in-studio with Mark Perzel to discuss how WordPlay came into being and the organization’s mission and goals.
