Absolutely dynamic, inventive, funny speaker and provocatively interesting poet. Some of my students told me this was their first poetry reading and they were blown away.

Jericho rocked my world, as always. What a great poet, speaker, supporter of writers, friend, etc. I wanted to stand up and applaud more than once during the reading. Watching the expressions on the audience's faces was wonderful--they were laughing, crying, glowing--altogether a fantastic event.
