My condolescences
February 27, 2013 | 06:25 PM

I met John R. Powers when I spoke about 15 years ago at a school function where I taught. He was a humble and kind man. I was driven to speechlessness when I met him because his book truly helped me get through puberty, and I loved directing his musical, "Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?" He was so gracious and kind when I gushed and went on in a rather moronic way. He will always be one of my favorite authors, speakers and human beings.
