Former BHS English Teacher to Co-Host Event with Amy Poehler

From the Harvard Bookstore webpage and the BHS English Department Blog:

Harvard Book Store is thrilled and delighted to welcome actress, comedian, and Burlington, Massachusetts, native AMY POEHLER for a discussion of her highly anticipated first book, Yes Please, in conversation with her high school English teacher, KATHY DALTON.
While originally a transplant from upstate New York, Kathy Dalton spent most of her career teaching English in Burlington, Massachusetts. In September of 1983, a bright, enthusiastic  and extremely inquisitive fourteen year old named Amy Poehler entered Ms. Dalton’s freshman class, and thus began their four year literary journey together. Although, it didn’t take long for Ms. Dalton to recognize that Amy’s own creative journey was just beginning, she never envisioned how far it would take her. Bravo, Amy! 
Ms. Dalton worked at BHS for over 20 years, and was one of the most memorable and engaging English teachers we’ve ever had. This event is sold out, but we are excited to see one of our own praised so highly by someone so recognizable! Congrats, Ms. Dalton!
The long anticipated memoir, Yes, Please, by Amy Poehler, is set for release on October 28th. We are excited to see if Mr. Yore makes an appearance in the section on Ms. Poehler's life. Check out a brief article about the book here.
