Hot Rhymes and Sour Beats

Shakespeare-pepperIn celebration of National Poetry month, we have a unique challenge for you. Try reciting Shakespeare while biting into a hot pepper. Or, if you can't take the heat, try reading a poem after eating some candy with super-sour pucker-power. We’ll provide something for you to read or you can use a poem of your choosing. [Original selections or materials must be approved by staff.] Hot Rhymes and Sour Beats is for all ages and will be on Wednesday, April 19, at 4pm. Come! It’ll be fun!
