Glover will meet with faculty, staff, and students to speak about what inspired him to become a writer and the methodologies he uses in working with children.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their children, who will get a chance to write their own sonnets and perform them-rapped, spoken, or sung-in an impromptu sonnet concert.

Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, and raised by a single mother, Glover graduated from Ithaca College and has been featured on NBC's Today Show.
