April is National Poetry Month!

The poem “Locksley Hall” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson notes, “In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.”  This spring we would love to invite everyone to two poetry events, as March goes out, and April showers us with Easter, April Fools’ Day, and National Poetry Month!

From 7-8:30 p.m. on Friday, April 6, the Aurora Downtown Campus Library will host an Open-Mic Night in partnership with Aurora First Fridays – bring your favorite poetry, short stories, comedy, or music to present, or just listen and enjoy.  Cookies and coffee provided.

Poetry Out Loud! will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 19 at Todd Library in Sugar Grove.  Recite your own, read a favorite, or just listen and enjoy!  Snacks provided.

For details, or to bring a class, please contact Kathy Bartel at kbartel@waubonsee.edu or (630) 801-7900, ext. 4626.
