Poetry Book Club & Workshop

Poetry Book Club & Workshop

The Poetry Book Club & Workshop is yet another new book club for 2020 and will be two-fold into its purpose. Led by newest staff member and poetry enthusiast Christopher, the meeting will begin with a discussion of the month’s poetry selection and will be followed by a workshop of members own poetry. Come for both parts or just one, we’d love to have anyone interested in exploring the vast world of poetry join us!

Poetry Book Club & Workshop meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7pm.

The forty-seven new works in this volume include poems on crickets, toads, trout lilies, black snakes, goldenrod, bears, greeting the morning, watching the deer, and, finally, lingering in happiness. Each poem is imbued with the extraordinary perceptions of a poet who considers the everyday in our lives and the natural world around us and finds a multitude of reasons to wake early.
