Poetry Memoir Class-MakeYour Own Book

It’s not too late!

Poetry Memoir Sessions Conclude in November

The well-attended poetry memoir series, led by our own Poet Laureate, Ann Muto, ends on November 16. Consider attending that final extended (10:45 am to 1:00 pm) session even if you did not attend any of the others. You will be able to make your own book guided by local book artist Keiko O’Leary. Whether you have one poem or 16, you will still be “published.”  Even if your first poem is eluding you at this moment, you will take home a unique art book, a gift for yourself or for someone special. For more information about Keiko’s talents, go to www.thinkinginkpress.com/tag/keikooleary/

The final memoir sessions are held in the Story Room at the Cupertino Library. If you have not attended before, please indicate your interest by emailing poetlaureate@cupertino.org.

November 2, 10:45 am to 12:15 pm, Wednesday “Holidays”–Writers can look at their family holiday traditions, exploring the uniqueness of their family celebrations and exploring similarities and differences of family history, ethnic identity and family origin.

November 16 , 10:45 am to 1 pm, Wednesday “My Poems, My Book” – Poets will walk out of this last session with their own book of poetry or at the very least a unique art book in which their poetry will find a home in the future. Poets will be invited to share one of their memoir poems with the group.
