Golden Shovel Poetry with Miss Nora
April 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Learn how to write poetry in the “Golden Shovel” style. Miss Nora will share poems from “One Last Word: Wisdom from the Harlem Renaissance,” by best selling author Nikki Grimes. This award winning book includes works from Langston Hughes and Georgia Douglas Johnson. Participants will be asked to bring along a favorite poem or select a poem from the library’s poetry collection. Miss Nora will outline the rules of “golden shovel” poetry to the group, then each team will write a new poem using the method. We promise poetry can be fun! For ages 7-11 with an adult partner.
