Wayland Free Public Library
Events at the Library
Join us for poetry and refreshments at the 2014 event featuring local poets Rachel Greenstein and Nancy Geiser. In addition, several other members of our workshop will be reading their own works as well.
Kay Harrington, a member of the poetry workshop, knows poetry isn't limited to one narrow definition. She describes her impressions this way:
"Poetry is more than putting words to paper. Admit it or not, we all nurture a “secret garden" within, much like the external hidden garden in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s childhood book: "The Secret Garden" (which is my second favorite childhood book.) I think poetry is our soul’s own voice speaking powerfully to and from our oft neglected gardens. Consequently, poetry not only enriches our daily lives with larger views, but it enables us to plumb the deeper dimensions of our own imaginations, where we are sure to find many variations on the word, “unordinary,” for example. Poetry is important, because it opens doors on our “secret gardens” where bushels of satisfaction and peace can spring from the rich black earth of creativity."
Doors open at 2:00 pm.
