April is National Poetry Month and a time to celebrate what Carl Sandburg described as "...the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits." Whatever your personal take on poetry, please take time this April to enjoy reading your favorite poems. If you don't have a favorite, ask a librarian to recommend one to you, and savor one of those slim volumes!
If writing poetry is your pleasure, join poet and teacher Patrice Vecchione for a Poetry Writing Workshop on Saturday, April 20, 2 - 3:30 p.m. Adults and teens age 14-up are welcome. It's free of charge, thanks to the Friends of the Monterey Public Library and a grant from Poets and Writers, Inc., but reservations are required. Call 831.646.3949. Visit www.monterey.org/library for more details.
By the way, Patrice has a newly released book of poems, The Knot Untied, which will be available for purchase and signing right after the workshop.
