No matter the season, you can find plenty of things happening at The Green Center. We are proud to present several new Arts & Culture programs, and we hope you come join us. It's an interesting things to be alive, and we live on a wonderful planet--we would love to help you explore it in word, sound, and image!
The Green Center Tea Society
At our weekly discussion group, we read, chat about, and celebrate a short poem. No special knowledge or prior reading is required. We merely want to enrich ourselves through the experience of great art and great perspectives on beauty, life, and nature that come from a conversation with new friends--and snacks.
Time: Every Wednesday at 4:00pm
Cost: Free and open to all
Please join us Wednesday, October 10th for a discussion of "Caterpillar" by Paul Hostovsky.
Brown Bag Poetry Workshop
Each Monday over a brown bag lunch, we meet to discuss some aspect of poetry--how we read it, and even how we write it! The hope is to have a painless experience exploring a world that everyday life makes hard to appreciate. Past topics include the basics of rhyme and rhythm, haiku, and how to think like a poet.
Time: Mondays at 12:00pm
Cost: $5.00 suggested donation
Beach reading! Please join us Monday, May 22nd, when we will look at poems from the beach, of the beach, and to the beach.
Six O'Clock Symposium Series
The Bookshelf in the Garden: A Writing Workshop with current Writer-in-Residence Chris Fahrenthold. We'll be using the descriptions and imagery of cookery and field guides as jumping-off points for thinking about creativity. Whether you're interested in journaling, poetry, or someday writing your memoirs, there's something to be gained by trying to enter the garden of the imagination through the side door of the apple pie recipe cooling on the window. And don't worry, we'll be mixing our metaphors in a safe space--no recitals required
Time: Thursday, October 12th, 6:00pm
Cost: Free, please RSVP
