The booth and I will be at the RI Festival of Children’s Books and Authors, at the Lincoln School, tomorrow 9-12.
You can bring your climate anxieties as you normally would. But I’ll also be helping people write poems for the River of Words contest, in conjunction with the RI Center for the Book and the RI Center for the humanities. Come and write a poem!
I’m also looking for volunteers to host tributary River of Words workshop for adults (River of Words proper is for kids and teenagers). Here’s what RICH and RICB are saying about it:
The Rhode Island Council for the Humanities and the Rhode Island Center for the Book are looking for volunteers to bring one-day writing workshops focusing on rivers and watersheds to local after-school and community programs, as part of River of Words, a national writing and art contest for K-12 students. The Library of Congress’ River of Words program connects multidisciplinary understanding of the environment, specifically watersheds, to literary creativity, artistic representation, and historical imagination. We are thrilled to host this program in Rhode Island with our geography of rivers, bays, and ocean and our associated history and culture.
