POETRY COMES TO KINGWOOD CENTER

A class about love, hate, and the path not taken will be coming to Kingwood Center on Thursday evenings, July 21 through August 25 from 6:30 to 8 PM.

Each session will be led by a poet who will present poems from those who have inspired and influenced them throughout their career. Discussion of technique, structure, and meaning will follow. It is a class about the magic of words in a magical setting. Participants are to meet in the Workshop Courtyard. Registration required. No class fee.  No admission/parking fee after 6:00.  Call 419-522-0211 ext. 107 to register and receive readings.
