Our teens will be hopping this month with incredible opportunities for creativity and fun. Teen Poetry Happens takes a field trip on Tuesday, March 11 to the Hiddenite Center's Lucas Mansion to explore ekphrastic poetry. The program begins at 3:30 pm and will end at 4:30 pm. Refreshments will be provided.
On Sunday, March 2, the Center had its Youth Art Competition and all of the works are on display. Our TPH teens will get to write poetry, short stories, or be inspired to draw even more art around the exhibition's works.
I was really excited that Jared Webb, one of my YAYA/TPH students,
played beautiful music for the art reception. Great job!
If you are an Alexander County teen and would like to join us at the Lucas Mansion, be there by 3:30 pm. I will provide transportation from the high school and public library with a signed form. Seats are limited so call me at the library
828-632-4058 to reserve a ride and get the form.
Then, on Friday night, March 21, will be the return of the teen lock-in for the beloved Hunger Games trilogy! 5 pm -
11 pm. This teen lock-in (for 7th grade to high school senior) will honor the second book/movie in the series, Catching Fire. Please make your reservations for the event by March 18. Call the library at the above number.
The YAYAs and I put together the video that details all the fun activities we have planned - including Skype chats with Paradise, CA and Craig, Alaska libraries. The lock-in will also will be in tandem with Teen Tech Week (albeit a week late). Cannot wait!
