TENAFLY, N.J. -- The Tenafly Public Library will host an evening of poetry with published poet James B. Nicola, sixth-grade students of Tenafly Middle School and the public, on Monday, March 28, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The evening will include a brief open mic segment, favorite poems performed by the students and Nicola reading some of his own poetry.
Light refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend this free event.
This celebration of poetry is the culmination of the students’ work with Nicola over the preceding weeks as part of a Visiting Artist Residency Program.
The program was made possible by a grant from the Tenafly Education Foundation and also including choreographer and Musical Theater specialist Joann Yeoman and playwright and memoirist Alan Tongret.
"Sounding the Silence: A World of Possibilities" is Nicola’s two-part student poetry workshop. Part 1: “Meter & Music,” introduces the principles involved in rhyme and formal verse; Part 2: “White Space & Wonder,” guides students in reading and reciting contemporary free verse.
