Gifts of a Wordsmith Will Host Poetry Readaround at Central Library, May 10
The Birmingham Public Library invites the public to join an evening of poetry hosted by Gifts of a Wordsmith, the poetry group for adults which meets at the Central Library on the first Tuesdays of each month. On Tuesday, May 10, 2016, 6:00-7:45 p.m., Gifts of A Wordsmith will host a special poetry readaround.
Participants have been honing their lyrical skills with the help of instructors Tina Mozelle Braziel and Alicia Clavell, and this event will allow them to share their accomplishments. Fellow poetry lovers are also invited to share their work in a relaxed, accepting setting. Light refreshments will be served.
“The creative atmosphere and spirit of community that the Birmingham Public Library provides is the perfect place for workshop participants from all levels to work on their writing in a safe, friendly environment,” Clavell said.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Haruyo Miyagawa, head of the Arts, Literature and Sports Department at the Central Library, at 205-226-3670 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
