Chris Harris Reads from His Upcoming Book of Poetry
I'm Just No Good At Rhyming
Saturday, October 7th 3:30 PM
Maybe you're a ten year-old or maybe you're a ten year-old at heart - whichever it may be, make sure you're here to listen to Chris Harris read from I'm Just No Good At Rhyming and Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-Ups.
If ever there was a deserving comparison to Shel Silverstein, this is it. Harris’ debut has all the unbridled silliness and imagination-expanding cleverness of Silverstein, with an added ingredient: the hilarious back-and-forth exchange between author and artist. Lemony Snicket says, "“There once was a poet named Chris, Whose book is quite hard to dismiss, His poetry skill Gives me quite a thrill And it’s hard to write poetry, particularly if it’s supposed to rhyme or fit into a certain rhythm, and if you don’t believe me, take a look at this.”
Chris Harris is a writer and executive producer for "How I Met Your Mother" and a writer for "The Late Show with David Letterman". His pieces have appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, and The New York Times. He is the author of the anti-travel guide Don't Go Europe.
