Homewood Library Will Host Gifts of a Wordsmith, Starting May 6
Starting Tuesday, May 6, the free monthly adult poetry workshop that is usually held at the downtown Birmingham Public Library will be held at the Homewood Public Library until the Birmingham location's air conditioning unit can be fixed. This week, the Birmingham location reduced its hours to close at 5 p.m. The move was necessary because of rising spring temperatures and a broken unit. As a result, the evening poetry workshop known as Gifts of a Wordsmith had to be moved. Homewood agreed to host the event until repairs can made.
Gifts of a Wordsmith will be held on the first Tuesday of the month from 6 to 8 p.m. It is free and open to the public. The Homewood Public Library is located at 1721 Oxmoor Road in Homewood. Real Life Poets partners with the Birmingham Public Library to offer the workshop.
Gifts of a Wordsmith will return to the Birmingham location after repairs are made. The downtown location could have reduced hours for up to seven weeks. Parts have been ordered for the air conditioner. Repairs will be scheduled once parts arrive.
