SummerWrite in the Branches: The Poetry of You/La poesía acerca de ti | Ages: 8 – 13

July 29 @ EST 1:00 pm - August 2 @ EST 4:00 pm


SummerWrite in the Branches: Families facing economic challenges are especially encouraged to register their young readers and writers in tuition-free camps held at five library branches.

Bilingual Camp

Express the story of who you are! Everyone holds a rich inner-world based on culture, history, and perspective. Together, we’ll unravel the tapestry of our past, explore our greatest wonders, reflect on our journeys through poetry, and weave daydreams into verse. Using Lincoln Library’s vast collection of Spanish language literature, we’ll read, write, and explore in community with one another. As the week culminates in a performance of our poems, we’ll unite to celebrate the vibrant mosaic of our community.

Expresa la historia de quién eres. Juntos, vamos a desenvolver el tapiz de nuestro pasado, explorar nuestras mayores maravillas, reflexionar sobre los viajes a través de la poesía y tejer nuestros ensueños en verso. Leeremos, escribiremos y exploraremos en comunidad unos con otros, usando la amplia colección de literatura en español de la Biblioteca Lincoln. Cada persona tiene un rico mundo interior basado en la cultura, historia y perspectiva. Crearemos autorretratos en forma de poemas y escribiremos en respuesta a otras formas de arte, como artes visuales, música, y más. Cuando la semana culmine con una presentación de nuestros poemas, nos uniremos para celebrar el brillante mosaico de nuestra comunidad.
