Poetry at the Community Earth Day Celebration

Hunger Mountain Coop’s Community Earth Day Celebration (623 Stone Cutters Way, April 22) will offer lots to do – and both kids and grownups will have a chance to enjoy poetry!


At 10 am, kids can join children’s librarian Nicole Westbom to write poems, listen to great stories, and take part in other hands-on activities in the kids’ tent. Write poems about nature!

At 5 pm, come and listen to poetry by Reuben Jackson along with music by Tom Morse and Jerome Monachino in the Coop Café. The Coop will have wine and cheese tastings, too!
