Michael Reads Poodle Knows Poetry Workshop
|Ages||5 & up|
|Instructor||Michael Clay Thompson|
In this workshop, Michael Clay Thompson will do a reading of Poodle Knows Poetry, with annotations and a discussion of the fundamental elements of poetry and poetic devices in prose. This is a unique opportunity for children to hear an author read his own work and talk to them about why he wrote it as he did. While adults can go and listen to authors talk about the process of writing a book, there’s almost no opportunity for children to have an interaction like that. This workshop provides that opportunity, not to mention a meaningful poetics lesson!
Live Classes: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, December 28, 29, and 30, 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time
Materials: Students will need a copy of Michael’s book Poodle Knows Poetry.
