Author, Lori Howe will return to the library on Tuesday, September 12 at 5 p.m. with a storytelling poems workshop. Participants are invited to choose some event, whether personal, historic, fictional, or some combination of those, and tell the story from the perspectives of at least three people involved in the event. In this way, and in a poem format, participants tell the story of the event by triangulating around it from those three different perspectives. Plan now to hone your writing skills at this workshop. Library programs are free and open to the public.
