Virtual Poetry: The Secret Life of Everyday Things

Free; All ages welcome

The whole family is invited to take part in this intergenerational poetry “playshop” led by Aldrich educator Barb Jennes, Ridgefield’s poet laureate. Drawing on Genesis Belanger’s new exhibit Through the Eye of a Needle, we’ll explore personification as we read, write, and share poems that create vivid character for everyday objects. No previous poetry-writing experience necessary—just the love of words and fun!
