Looking for something to do over spring break? Celebrate National Poetry Month at the Teen Poetry Night! We will transform the Doña Benicia room into a coffee house full of java and treats while we listen to teen poetry! Bring your favorite poems to read (whether you or someone else wrote them) or choose a poem at the event!
Every month Benicia's Poet Laureate, Lois Requist, chooses a poem of the month from participants of the First Tuesday Poetry Group. See the poem chosen for December and find other poems chosen from other months.
Remember all are welcome to attend the First Tuesday Poetry Group. Next meeting is February 5th at 6:30 p.m.
Lois Requist, Benicia's Poet Laureate will do a reading of her work. Lois says, "While I've never made a living writing, I have created a life--one that makes sense to me." By talking about her writing in connection with her life, she hopes to give additional meaning and context to the work.
Cartoonist Age Scott will show you ways to create a great comic! This is a continuation of his previous two workshops, and he will be teaching new drawing skills today! If you're new to drawing, don't worry. You'll pick up the skills.
