(middle) “Dr. John Telford is the true poet of the people – he is America’s voice for the voiceless” This high praise for Telford’s new book, “Poetic Prancings of Mad John” comes from poet laureate M.L. Liebler, the author of “Wide Awake In Someone Else’s Dream”. A poet since the age of 12, some of his other youthful activities were less productive. After being incarcerated in a juvenile detention facility for fighting and getting expelled from one Detroit high school in 1951, he was graduated from another in January, 1954, As an athlete, Telford was undefeated at 400 meters in Europe as a world-ranked sprinter and in1978, he was inducted into the Wayne State University Athletic Hall of Fame. He is most recently known for being the controversial former Superintendent of the Detroit Public Schools. He was also a college professor and administrator-and a human-rights activist and author, a newspaper columnist, and a radio and television commentator. Now at 78 years old, Telford serves as the DPS education liaison for Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.
If you would like to meet Dr. Telford, he is having a pot-luck dinner on Friday, July 25 at 6 p.m. at his home. Bring your own drinks, utensils and a dish to pass. He is encouraging other poets to come and share some of their works. He will be reading from “Poetic Prancings” and may even bring out his fiddle. The party is at 34136 Jefferson in St. Clair Shores.
