Homewood Public Library Will Host Teen Poetry Workshop Until AC is Repaired at Central Library

The free teen poetry workshop that is usually held at the Central Library will be held at the Homewood Public Library until Central's air conditioning unit can be fixed. The East Building of the Birmingham location reduced its hours to close at 12:00 noon. The move was necessary because of rising temperatures and a broken unit. As a result, the teen poetry workshop had to be moved. Homewood graciously agreed to host the event until repairs can be made.

The teen workshop will be held every Saturday from 2:00-4:00 p.m. It is free and open to all middle school and high school age teens. Real Life Poets, a non-profit creative writing organization, partners with the Birmingham Public Library to offer the workshop. Occasionally the workshop may be cancelled due to conflicts with other events. Contact John Paul Taylor of RLP to confirm the workshop is being held; the e-mail is johnpaul@reallifepoets.org and telephone is 205-585-8271. Please share with those who may have an interest.

The teen poetry workshop will return to the Birmingham location after repairs are made. Parts have been ordered for the air conditioner, and repairs will be scheduled once parts arrive.

This workshop is funded by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
