Haiku For You! A hands-on workshop for all ages

Saturday, May 1410:30 AM—12:00 PMLearning CenterCary Memorial Library1874 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington, MA, 02420

"Short, sharp, witty — the words in haiku are like candy,” says writer Jessie Brown. Come join this fun, interactive workshop designed for people of all ages. Bring a grandparent, child, sibling or friend! Make your own haiku or work together. Create a poem inspired by nature, a neighborhood, a favorite food or animal and give it to someone you love. And look for this summer's call for "Neighborhood Haiku" — your poem may be painted in a storefront in Lexington Center as part of a public art project organized by the Lexington Cultural Council.

Jessie Brown (www.JessieBrown.net) leads poetry workshops in schools, libraries, and cultural centers throughout the Boston area. The author of Lucky and What We Don’t Know We Know, she also collaborates on interdisciplinary projects in poetry and the visual arts in local communities.

This program is made possible by the generous donors to the Cary Library Foundation.
