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, May 3rd for a discussion of "Lines Written in Oregon" by Vladimir Nabokov.
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
Carpe Diem! Please join us Monday, April 24th, when we discuss those poems that exhort us to seize the day!
Six O'Clock Symposium Series
A Terrible Beauty is Born: Romanticism, Frankenstein, and The Poetry of J. Robert Oppenheimer. Current Writer-in-Residence Chris Fahrenthold will discuss how modern artists have wrestled with scientific discovery and the raw strangeness of nature.
Time: Tuesday, February 21st, 6:00pm
Cost: $20.00 suggested donation
Thank you to all who attended. Stay tuned for our next announced Tuesday Night Symposium.
