Celebrating Poetry with Alumni Father and Son Poets

Award winning poet, Jack Grapes, and his son Josh (class of 2009) visited the library in April to help celebrate National Poetry Month. Jack and Josh took turns reading their own poems and discussing perspectives on inspiration and process. They fully engaged students in discussion around topics of love, grief, darkness and light. Josh offered the idea that once a piece of writing is experienced by a reader it no longer belongs to the writer anymore. He further revealed that no meaning or interpretation is incorrect once readers relate and apply meaning to a work. Middle school student, Ciel M. shares: "It made me think of the multiple layers that go into the process of poetry." The father/son team offered a unique view into the world of poetry and the realities of being writers.

Sewing - This Friday, May 13th, 2-4PM?

If you are interested and able to sew this Friday, May 13th, 2-4PM please contact Michelle at If enough people can make it, we will set up the machines and materials. You do not need to have experience. We know that Friday afternoons are difficult for some people, but last month's sewing event was so much fun. We'd love to do it again!
