Join Shannon on Zoom to explore using someone else’s printed words to discover your own creative voice. Grab some markers, crayons or colored pencils, and a page of newsprint or magazine print–and don’t forget to bring your imagination! Shannon’s taught her version of this literary form to high schoolers and adults–all are welcome! We’ll identify an “anchor word” and build a fun and funky poem from there! This is free, fine for all ages, and can be as simple and light or as intense in your creation as you like! Need more information? Want to try it on your own? Try this link: Blackout Poetry.
Join Shannon for stories of misunderstood characters like Androcles and the Lion and Alexander the Great and his horse Bucephalus, on the library’s Facebook page. The storytelling starts at 7pm!
