Stars of Poetry

Are you a star of poetry? If not, you can easily become one this summer! Join this free series of workshops to explore poets, poem-making, and performance. In each of these four workshops we will consider the lives of a prestigious poet, including Naomi Shihab Nye and Juan Felipe Herrera, reflecting on how their lives inform their work. We will write poems, receive guidance and feedback from poets in the community and perform our work out loud, sharing our stories together. No experience necessary. Come with an open heart and mind. Co-facilitated by Magdalena Montagne and poets from the Legendary Poetry Collective, as well as poets from the library’s Community Poetry Circles.

Wednesday, June 19 at 1:00pm to 3:00pm
