As Steve Mooser introduced this year's Golden Kite winner for non-fiction, he mentioned that if anyone saw Ashley Bryan at last night's poolside gala, they might not realize he just turned 87. But I was witness, and now you can be too.
Here is Ashley Bryan dancing with the lovely Sally Crock.
Mr. Bryan's beautiful book ASHLEY BRYAN: WORDS TO MY LIFE'S SONG was chosen as this year's Golden Kite winner for nonfiction.
As Ashley Bryan takes the stage to except his award, he exudes his love of poetry. He has more energy than this whole room of 1100 people as he recites two poems with the entire crowd echoing back.
"What we create is what lasts."
