Writing the Land: a Poetry Workshop with Laura Apol, Lansing’s Poet Laureate

Stretch your creativity in this two-part poetry workshop, led by Lansing’s current Poet Laureate, Laura Apol. Laura is an associate professor of literacy, literature and creative writing in the MSU College of Education.

Laura feels “Poems are about community—So much of a place, and people in a place, can be expressed and understood through poetry.” In this workshop, participants will look at models of "place" poetry in the first week, with some writing done in the workshop and a prompt to take home; the second meeting will have additional in-session writing, with an opportunity to share and receive feedback on the take-home prompt from the previous session- and possibly a "reading" of the Writing the Land poems. Since workshop sessions build on one another, participants are requested to commit to both workshops when they register. Age group: Older teens and adults. 

CONTACT: Jean Fellows  517-627-7014  gladlprogramming@gmail.com
LOCATION: 1931 Room
There are 7 spaces available.

Writing the Land: a Poetry Workshop with Laura Apol, Lansing’s Poet Laureate

Stretch your creativity in this two-part poetry workshop, led by Lansing’s current Poet Laureate, Laura Apol. Laura is an associate professor of literacy, literature and creative writing in the MSU College of Education.

Laura feels “Poems are about community—So much of a place, and people in a place, can be expressed and understood through poetry.” In this workshop, participants will look at models of "place" poetry in the first week, with some writing done in the workshop and a prompt to take home; the second meeting will have additional in-session writing, with an opportunity to share and receive feedback on the take-home prompt from the previous session- and possibly a "reading" of the Writing the Land poems. Since workshop sessions build on one another, participants are requested to commit to both workshops when they register. Age group: Older teens and adults. 

CONTACT: Jean Fellows  517-627-7014  gladlprogramming@gmail.com
LOCATION: 1931 Room
There are 11 spaces available.

Families welcome at 6 to check out materials, get library cards, etc. Themed sleepy stories start at 6:30, with quiet songs/rhymes, a snack and then home to bed at 7 pm.

Code Club Showcase

Code Club Showcase Day is February 26th.

Do you have a project that you've been working on or have finished, that you'd like to show to the rest of the club? Today's your opportunity to do so. We'll have a projector set up for coders to demonstrate what fun and exciting ideas they've come up with. Pizza will be provided, and we'll have Ozobots available to experiment with, as well. Ozobots are small, programmable robots that react to lines and colors, and can perform lots of different functions.

Coding and computer science are a new kind of digital literacy, and libraries all over the U.S. are stepping up to help everyone build 21st century skills.  We’re launching our very own Code Club -- No coding expertise necessary.  Your kids can learn important tech skills and have fun along the way. They’ll work on learning how to make websites, video games, apps, animations, and more! Code Club will meet every Wednesday starting January 15th from 6:00-7:00 pm in the Shipman Room. Every few weeks we’ll host a coding showcase.  For ages 8-18.  Code Club is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Science

Miz Rosie Presents: Meet Harrriet Tubman

Rosie Chapman, a.k.a. Miz Rosie, is a storyteller, author, poet, and artist who thrills audiences of all ages with storytelling. Rosie’s interactive “edutainment”, warms the heart and stimulates the mind. Miz Rosie will offer a look into history with her performance of Harriet Tubman. Born into slavery, Harriet Tubman escaped to freedom in the North in 1849 to become the most famous "conductor" on the Underground Railroad! She risked her life to lead hundreds of family members and other slaves from the plantation system to freedom on this elaborate secret network of safe houses. A leading abolitionist before the Civil War, Tubman also worked as a Union Army spy during the Civil War. In honor of her life and by popular demand, in 2016, the U.S. Treasury Department announced that Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the center of a new $20 bill.

Recommended age for this program is 7 and up.
