Friday: Kids Who Know Everything

Sept. 29

A few weeks ago we ran a cover story comprised of poems and profiles of various Baltimoreans written by the teen participants of Writers in Baltimore Schools’ Summer Writers’ Studio, and like other examples of writing by non-adults, the issue demonstrated how kids are often as clued-in to the world as we are—if not more so—and how they can offer keen insights that are important for us olds to lend an ear and a platform to. Now we have "Kids Who Know Everything," a new show that highlights youth voices on the issues that matter. The pilot episode will be shot live at Red Emma's, where local teens will speak on the topic "Don't Save Us!" on a panel with special guest grown-up D. Watkins, author of "The Cook-Up" and "The Beast Side," plus host Valencia D. Clay. If you have children, bring them—it's never too late to show our kids that their voices are valuable, and that we adults are capable of just shutting up and listening. 6 p.m., Red Emma's, 30 W. North Ave., (443) 602-7585,, free. (Maura Callahan)
