Poetry Book Aimed at High School Students
From television to poetry – a local author/speaker releases a new motivational poetry book.
North Central substitute teacher and after-school television talk show host Blair Karsch has published the book, Bigger Than Cool: Motivational and Inspirational Thought Provoking Poetry.”
“Kids need a connection to why they’re in school,” said Karsch. “Hopefully, this book will give them some sort of connection.” The 236-page book contains more than 500 poems ranging from learning to family to race relations.
Karsch thinks kids need a tie to the real world.
“I think I speak in the kid’s language,” he said.
Karsch hopes to reach kids through the rhythm and beat of his poetry and to put a “positive perspective on the issues to facilitate a positive outcome.”
Although he has sent copies of his book to publishers, Karsch is currently publishing and marketing the book himself.
The book is now available for $15 at Chapters, Borders, Barnes & Nobles and Treehouse bookstores, as well as Grateful Threads and PAK Mail stores. The book can also be purchased by mail by sending a check to 9425 N. Meridian, Suite 152, Indianapolis, IN 46260 or calling 971-2626.
