"Slam Poet" Bas Boettcher at the German School
On June 18, 2014, the German speaking "Slam Poet" Bas Boettcher visited the German School Washington D.C.. The occasion was "The International Day Of The Book". The event, jointly hosted by Ms. Schumann (German Department) and Mr. Thommes (Library of grades 5-12), and sponsored by the Friends of the German School, was divided into a one-hour presentation and two 90-minute workshops. According to numerous participants, it was very successful. A big thank-you to the "Slam Poet" himself and to everyone else who made this entertaining and instructional event possible!
