Calling all poets! The Dormann Library has several events planned to celebrate National Poetry Month and we hope that you will join us in the joy that comes with playing with words and listening deeply.
First up: On Wednesday, April 10, we will be making some found poetry “Ransom Note” style. From 6:00pm to 6:30pm, we will be finding poems using old magazines, scissors, glue sticks, and our imaginations. If you can’t make it that evening, don’t worry. We will have a “Ransom Poetry” making station set up in the library for the rest of the month.
We hope that you can make it, because immediately following the crafty portion of the evening, local high-schooler Lexi Loss will be our featured reader doing a Slam Poetry performance starting at 6:30pm on April 10th. Lexi has previously lived in South Carolina and Queens, New York. For a young poet, she has an impressive resume having previously performed at the Nuyorican Poets Café in New York City and at a Gala for SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young (both events in 2018).
We are hoping that many young poets will be inspired by Lexi to come and share their work with us. Immediately following her performance, we will have an open mic time for others to share their work and voices. All ages are welcome at this free event.
The Dormann Library has more poetry events planned for later in the month. You can always find more information about our events on our website at www.dormannlibrary.org
