Sarasota News Leader September 6, 2013 Page 36 gram will continue with four young library patrons, who will introduce each of the four girls killed in 1963: Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson and Denise McNair. There will be poetry, more music and a reading from King's eulogy for the victims, presented by Newtown minister Kelvin Lumpkin. The following section of the program, Reverberations, will highlight the original poetry of none other than Sarasota County Commission Chairwoman Carolyn Mason. "Isn't that something?" asks North Sarasota Library Artist in Residence Lonnetta Gaines, one of the organizers of the event. She didn't learn that Mason wrote poetry till she traveled to Denver with the commissioner to represent Sarasota in this year's All-America City competition. Commissioner Carolyn Mason.
