Poetry! 

Read aloud and book discussion:  Gone Fishing, a novel in verse by Tamera Will Wissinger.  

Book description: Gone Fishing is a novel in verse written in a variety of poetic styles.  In addition, each poem is accompanied by one or more illustrations.  Sam loves fishing with his dad.  So, when his pesky little sister horns in on their fishing trip, he’s none too pleased: “Where’s my stringer / Something’s wrong! / This princess doll does not belong!” Winsome poems – from acrostic to ballad – build a dawn to dusk story of a father-son bond and of sibling harmony lost and found. Includes a Poet’s Tackle Box at the end: a box of tools to help us write poems. 

After exploring the different types of poetry, everyone will have a chance to write their own poem.

Mom's WWII Letters

In May 2017, Corinne H. Smith found her mother's stash of more than 100 letters from 16 servicemen she had corresponded with during World War II. Corinne began to trace the soldiers' family trees with one goal in mind: to return the letters in person to their children. Learn about her on-going project, and hear some of the stories of the men, their experiences, and what their relatives have to say today. This presentation links history and genealogy to present-day research and diligence. It revisits a time that we may not want to forget. And it may prompt audience members to wonder for themselves what treasures may be lurkingin their own old family boxes -- and how they can share the information with others.

Corinne H. Smith is a writer who is originally from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She served for several years on the board of The Blair County Genealogical Society in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Her first book was a self-published family history titled "From Saxony to the Lehigh Valley: The Descendents of Ludwig Hossfeld" (1992). Since then, she has written several books about American author Henry David Thoreau. She is a former librarian and lives in Gardner, Massachusetts.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Fitchburg Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Learn about her on-going project, and hear some of the stories of the men, their experiences, and what their relatives have to say today. This presentation links history and genealogy to present-day research and diligence. It revisits a time that we may not want to forget. And it may prompt audience members to wonder for themselves what treasures may be lurkingin their own old family boxes -- and how they can share the information with others.

Corinne H. Smith is a writer who is originally from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She served for several years on the board of The Blair County Genealogical Society in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Her first book was a self-published family history titled "From Saxony to the Lehigh Valley: The Descendents of Ludwig Hossfeld" (1992). Since then, she has written several books about American author Henry David Thoreau. She is a former librarian and lives in Gardner, Massachusetts.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Fitchburg Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
