Poetry Workshops: April is National Poetry Month. We will be celebrating at the Elizabeth Taber Library with three poetry programs:
Thursday, April 3 at 4:00 pm – Have you ever wondered what separates good poets from the rest? How do I look at a poem to better understand the meaning, style and power of its works? Join us on Thursday, April 3 at 4:00 pm at the Elizabeth Taber Library for an introduction to poetry, where we’ll examine a variety of different writers, why they use a certain form, select particular words or end a line where they choose. Tony Pedevillano, published poet and teacher for over thirty years, will help guide you through the process and help you appreciate the poet’s craft.
Friday, April 18 at 11:00 am – Join us on Friday, April 18, at 11:00 am for another exciting poetry workshop where Dr. Charles White will present different techniques and ways to approach poetry as a reader.
