I owe a debt to Bill Perrault for documenting Stone Soup Poetry those first couple of years I didn't own a digital camera (or steal my Mom's). Otherwise I would have no documentation of Jade Sylvan's first ever feature at Stone Soup Poetry.
Jade's first poetry collection, The Crossing, had just come out. If you think Jade took time to become a big deal in the poetry scene, you'd be wrong. The audience in attendance that night was the largest I've ever seen. So crowded that someone in the audience fainted shortly after Jade opened up with an acoustic cover of Bob Dylan's "Tangled Up in Blue."
