On April 9 at Bear Pond Books (77 Main St, Montpelier) at 11:00 am, Vermont’s new Poet Laureate Chard deNiord will hold a workshop for educators. DeNiord has a goal of getting schools across Vermont engaged in poetry. He’s been involved in many poetry organizations, including the Next Stage Speaks initiative that he founded. He’ll speak about his experiences with Vermont students, in Vermont schools, and what opportunities there are for local teachers and librarians to bring poetry into their students’ learning lives.
This event is part of Bear Pond’s Author-Educator workshop series. All events take place
in the Children’s Room, and are free and open to the public. Certificates of attendance are available for educators who can use these workshops towards continuing education credits.
