The Words We Tell:Poetry Workshop

Autumn has been a symbol for some not-so-happy feelings and ideas in the world of poetry for quite some time. But this doesn’t have to be so! We’re in Texas after all, and autumn means this heat is subsiding!  Give this autumn a positive association: make it a productive season for your poetry!
Israel, our Circulation Assistant would like to help! Israel has his Degree in English-Creative writing from the University of Houston where his focus was poetry. He is putting together a monthly poetry workshop for adults starting September 11,2013 so that he can share some of his knowledge. Participants will share their poems and receive constructive criticism so as to improve not only their work, but their skills as poets and writers.
So come to Northwest Library and sign up! Share your poetry, listen to the work of your friend’s and neighbors, and have a good time!

Book Talk Bits

Hooray! What a summer we are planning for Adults. Those with I pad, Kindle, Nooks, or other e-reader device or I phone. We are calling on you to be in the spot light sharing your book with other readers in the book talk.  All you will need to do is tell a snippet about the book you have read on your device. Do not tell all just enough to get us interested in the book. Each person attending will share their own book. We will do this on the Second Monday in June, July, and August at 2:00 PM. Don’t be shy it’s all about sharing your love for books.  We will call ourselves “The Techie Book Invaders.” Interested persons contact Gwendolyn here at the Northwest Branch Library.

Dates: June 10, 2013, July 8, 2013, August 12, 2013 @2:00 PM
