Award-winning DC poet Roberta Beary will read from her published works. Roberta studied haiku in Japan. Her individual poems, an unconventional hybrid of haiku and senryu, have been honored throughout North America, Europe and Asia for their innovative style. Her book of short poems, The Unworn Necklace (Snapshot Press, 2007), was a finalist for the William Carlos Williams Book Award (Poetry Society of America) and was named a Haiku Society of America Merit Book Award prize winner.
An adventurous girl finds another world that is a strangely idealized version of her frustrating home. Despite warnings, she decides to unlock the door when she is home by herself. What do you think is behind the door? Do you think Coraline will be able to return to her own world? If you want to find out join us for our monthly movie program. All ages are welcome.
Join us on Sunday afternoons from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. for a knitting (and crochet!) circle. All experience levels welcome, and we will offer introductory instruction to beginners. In-house training materials will be provided, but please bring needles and yarn for your own take-home projects.
