A Buggy Haiga Time at TPH!

Hi All!

TPH @ The Bean was awesome on Tuesday, February 16! Weren't those some cool haiga poems above? Haiga are haiku poems with accompanying drawings or photos. It was a great way to mesh our poets with our artists.

We had an awesome turnout, too! I counted at least 27 folks who joined us. The Alexander Friends of the Library provided yummy baked items to go with the Bean's tasty libations.

Tonight is the night for poetry readings at the Bethlehem branch. The program begins at 7 pm. Some of our area's most revered poets will be reading from their latest publications. The poets are Ann Chandonnet, Bud Caywood, Scott Owens and Tim Peeler. (Bud and Scott are two of our poetry judges for the Alexander Muse contest. Yeah!)

Remember, March 1 is the last day to turn in poetry, prose and art work for prizes and publication in the first ever Alexander Muse teen literary magazine. Hope every teen in the county contributes!
